The newly revised and updated eighth edition of the Intellectual Freedom Manual makes its debut TODAY at the ALA Store at the 2010 ALA Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. The Manual also is available online at www.alastore.ala.org (search for Intellectual Freedom Manual).
A convenient reference guide for librarians and library trustees addressing intellectual freedom and privacy issues in their libraries, the eighth edition of the Manual includes up-to-date legal information on censorship, minors’ rights, and the USA PATRIOT Act, three new Interpretations of the Library Bill of Rights, revisions to ten existing Interpretations of the Library Bill of Rights and major policy documents addressing privacy and professional ethics.
And due to popular demand… a revamped and revised website to supplement and update the print edition of the Intellectual Freedom Manual also debuts during Annual. Online at www.ifmanual.org, the new site provides access to new policies and policy revisions as well as expanded online resources for academic and school librarians.
The Intellectual Freedom Manual is a must-have for libraries and supporters of intellectual freedom. Get your copy today!
