Discussion Draft of a new "Politics in Libraries Interpretation" of the Library Bill of Rights

by Doug Archer on Mon, Feb 20, 2017 at 01:18 pm

Colleagues,

Here is a draft copy of a new "Politics in Libraries Interpretation" of the Library Bill of Rights.  The IFC would greatly appreciate your observations and suggestions as it prepares the document for consideration at ALA's Annual Meeting this summer in Chicago.  Please send in your comments using Connect by Friday, March 21.  Our hope is to incorporate suggestions as appropriate and distribute a revised version of this draft before Annual for further input.

Best wishes,

Doug
