Each month we post upcoming free virtual conferences to our training calendar. Here are the offerings coming up for June.
June 8 (1-4 pm)
Banned Books and Censorship: Current Intellectual Freedom Issues in the Library (Library 2.0/San Jose State University School of Information)
With book bans all over the news, intellectual freedom is under attack, with a specific focus on materials and programs related to or representative of marginalized communities. In this Library 2.0 mini-conference, we will examine the current trends in censorship and explore solutions for how to promote our principles in an era of increasing polarization. We will also explore the dilemmas that arise at the intersection of intellectual freedom and social justice.
June 8 (9-4:30 pm)

Participants can opt to attend live or virtual sessions. Certified teachers can earn Continuing Education credits towards recertification.
