This session will review legal aspects of intellectual freedom, censorship, and confidentiality, discuss policies that affect privacy, and provide a real-life example of how to respond positively to a negative challenge. Because these topics are fundamental to public library service, it is imperative that library staff and trustees understand these most important foundations of librarianship.
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
--define the differences among the terms of intellectual freedom, censorship and confidentiality;
--identify the overlap of these three terms in the overall service of public libraries;
--gain practical information about how to positively respond to a materials challenge;
--realize the need to adopt policies that promote intellectual freedom while maintaining confidentiality.
Webinar will be recorded
