One
of the core values in libraries is Intellectual Freedom, ensuring free access
to information. Collection Management is one of the key areas in that
mission. Creating policies that ensure diversity and accessibility to
information for our communities, while also valuing the different opinions in
that community, can be challenging for the library organization. 

It
is important to understand the core concepts of Intellectual Freedom and how
they apply to collection development so that your library is fulfilling its
mission in your community.

After
this webinar participants will:

·         Understand what 'intellectual freedom'
means and ensure that collection management policies include and align with
these concepts

·         Understand the processes for handling
challenges to materials and services and be able to create appropriate
procedures and documents for challenges

·        Be more aware of tools to assist with
intellectual freedom concepts   and
collection management
