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
