    3rd of 3 New Draft Interpretations of the Library Bill of Rights - #3 Visual and Performing Arts in Libraries


    Please review this draft interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights and respond with your suggestions by May 1 (note the new date).  The Intellectual Freedom Committee will revise it in light of your suggestions and bring it to Annual Conference in Chicago for your consideration.  In addition to offering your own suggestions, please distribute it as widely as possible to others for their input.


    Thanks very much,


    Doug

    A comment from one of the groups that the ODLOS AC represents (These comments do not represent all of the groups as a whole and were not edited -- they are from individuals within the larger membership): 

    For the Visual and Performing Arts Guidelines, I would like to include a note about how Library Collection Development administrative decisions and selections of art pieces/subjects/etc. should be free of bias or preferential treatment for one group or individual over another.
