What IF...? Intellectual Freedom Training Resources for Library Staff

Your library embraces the values of free access to information, protecting patron privacy, and other tenets of intellectual freedom. Are all of your front line staff, including volunteers and student workers, familiar with these values? Are they prepared to uphold your library policies when conflicts arise? Come to this session to learn about a range of training options, many of them free and online, for preparing your staff to uphold your library’s intellectual freedom values.
