The new edition of the Intellectual Freedom Manual is more than just an invaluable compendium of guiding principles and policies. It s also an indispensable resource for day-to-day guidance on maintaining free and equal access to information for all people. Fortifying and emboldening professionals and students from across the library spectrum, this manual includes

  • 34 ALA policy statements and documents, 17 new or updated for this edition, addressing patron behavior, internet use, copyright, exhibits, use of meeting spaces, and other common concerns
  • At-a-glance lists summarizing key issues such as access, challenges and censorship, access by minors to controversial materials, and advocacy
  • Explanations of legal points in clear, easy-to-understand language, alongside case citations
  • Numerous checklists to help readers stay organized
  • A glossary and selected bibliography
This must-have tool will help librarians ensure that institutions of all kinds remain beacons of intellectual freedom.

About the Author:

ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) is charged with implementing the intellectual freedom policies of the American Library Association through educating librarians and the public about the concept of intellectual freedom as embodied in the Library Bill of Rights, the Association's basic policy on free access to libraries and library materials. In order to meet its educational goals, the Office undertakes information, support, and coordination activities.

Review:

The text is very well written and provides a wealth of information about each topic, including specific situational examples and explanations of the law surrounding the different topics. The information is organized well and includes great details to make navigation as simple as possible. It is very helpful to have all of this information collected and organized in one simple resource. Proponents of intellectual freedom would benefit from having a copy of this manual on hand." --American Reference Books Annual

Some barriers to reading are imposed by community members, parents, and laws, and librarians ought to be familiar with readers' rights and the library's responsibility to its readers. So, keep this manual handy! ... Foremost, the editors and authors have packed into fewer than 300 pages a useful toolkit for librarians' work to provide services and to understand terminology, fundamental documents and the information professionals' responsibility to unwaveringly stand up to protect intellectual freedoms of the citizenry." --Reference Reviews

"It is best to be prepared, and all U.S. librarians should have a basic understanding of the principles outlined in this book." --Journal of Hospital Librarianship
