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.
This ola-ifc email list is maintained by the OLA Intellectual Freedom Committee in cooperation with the Oregon State Library. To send an email on this list, address it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please extend this invitation to teachers, scholars, writers or others in your community who may be interested in receiving intellectual freedom news. Here is the link to subscribe: ola-ifc email list
Feel free to contact us with questions or comments.
Thanks and best wishes,
Roberta Richards and Garnetta Wilker, OLA IFC co-chairs
Faculty Reference Librarian
