Going to Annual in Chicago?  Squeeze these quick intellectual freedom experiences into your schedule!

“Intellectual Freedom 101” promises to be a fast-paced tour of the wide variety of committees, round tables, offices, organizations and people involved in intellectual freedom endeavors in our profession. Meet other folks passionate about protecting patrons’ rights and find out how to keep up to date or get more involved.  Pop in to W180 in McCormick Place on Saturday morning from 10:30 until 11:30 a.m.  Find it in the conference schedule here.

“Stand for the Banned” gives you a chance to share your personal experience of battling censorship, or talk about how a favorite banned book has affected you.  Videotaped stories will be featured during Banned Books Week.  You can drop by the recording booth (near the registration counter) between 9:00 and 5:00 on Saturday or Sunday. Or make a reservation so you don’t have to wait in line. Find out more on the Intellectual Freedom Blog of the Office for Intellectual Freedom.


Laura Jenkins is Co-Chair of the ALSC Intellectual Freedom Committee.
