This session will prepare librarians to be proactive in defending intellectual freedom. We will share resources that can be used when developing a collection development policy and responding to challenges. We will then review current trends in intellectual freedom by using scenarios to illustrate how all of these tools and resources can be used.

Learning objectives:
Participants will become familiar with resources and tools that they can use to defend intellectual freedom. 
Participants will learn about the importance of reporting challenges to the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom.
