New Intellectual Freedom email list

Breaking news from the Libs-Or list-serv about a new Intellectual Freedom email list!

Library staff as well as scholars, academics, debate coaches and others with a professional interest in intellectual freedom are invited to join a new email news list: ola-ifc email list

This list will provide a forum to share news, information, and resources related to intellectual freedom. For example, the OLA Intellectual Freedom Committee and the Oregon State Library maintain a database of news articles about book challenges and other intellectual freedom issues in Oregon: Intellectual Freedom Issues in Oregon News Database. New content is added to this resource twice a year, which may be of interest to instructors who assign writing topics related to banned books, as well as others in the library community.
