What happens when a resource in a K-12 library is challenged? We don’t always think of Internet filtering as censorship, but it can be. How do emerging student privacy laws impact intellectual freedom? How can UNESCO’s Five Laws of Media and Information Literacy support responsible use? How can professional organizations such as the American Library Association (ALA) and the American Association of School Librarians support educators? How can intellectual freedom promote library and librarian advocacy? In this edWebinar, Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan (CT) High School, and Kristin Pekoll, Assistant Director at the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, will answer these questions and many more. All librarians are invited to attend this live, interactive session.
