New Documents from ALA

Posted by Susan Gilbert on behalf of Marianne Fues, Missouri (MASL) AASL Delegate, AASL IF Committee member

During the American Library Association Conference in Chicago in July, the ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee (IFC) worked on the following documents and all have relevance for school library media specialists:

  • Minors and Internet Interactivity: An Interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights (new)
  • Importance of Education to Intellectual Freedom: An Interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights (new)
  • Access to Digital Information, Services, and Networks: An Interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights (revised)
  • Labeling and Rating Systems: An Interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights (revised)

 

All the documents were approved by ALA Council on July 15, 2009 and can be located in alphabetical order at  http://www.ala.org/ala/aboutala/offices/oif/statementspols/statementsif/interpretations/default.cfm.
