Welcome to the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom blog! Our blog will feature alerts, articles, commentary, links, news, and more, to expand our ability to fulfill our mission: to implement ALA policies concerning the concept of intellectual freedom as embodied in the Library Bill of Rights. Our goal—for nearly 40 years!—is to educate librarians and the general public about the nature and importance of intellectual freedom in libraries.
Reader commentary, opinion, and reaction to posts are welcome and encouraged. Comments should be relevant to the specific post to which they are attached.
We believe in the importance of promoting and preserving the freedom to seek, hold, receive, and disseminate ideas. We trust our blog will help us do just that. Let us know how we’re doing at email@example.com!
