Navigating Banned and Challenged Books - Webinar (09/01/22)

For both new and veteran librarians, dealing with banned or challenged books can be overwhelming. Get advice on where to start with this in-depth session on how to best navigate intellectual freedom, censorship, and more—in accessible terms. The training will offer a series of resources that school and public librarians can use to advocate for themselves, and will provide advice on developing written guidelines that LIS professionals can bring to superiors or library boards.

This webinar focuses on School and Public libraries as the most frequent targets of challenges. There will, however, be valuable content for academic libraries pertaining to strengthening collection development policies.
