    Hello, everyone -

    Below is a message from Julia Warga, chair of the Intellectual Freedom Committee


    This is the second request for feedback from the ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee (IFC) after the Midwinter Meeting. In anticipation of a new edition of the Intellectual Freedom Manual, the IFC is continuing to update intellectual freedom-related documents.


    The IFC would appreciate feedback on two interpretation drafts by Wednesday, April 17:  "Evaluating Library Collections" (adopted in 1973, amended in 1981 and 2008) and "Minors and Internet Activity" (adopted in 2009, amended in 2014).


    Please feel free to share this message widely. Feedback can be posted in the following two ways:

    • Using "track changes," add comments and edits to the attached Word drafts. You can email them to me ( or post them as a comment to this ALA Connect post, and I'll forward them to working group members.


    The Intellectual Freedom Committee will make revisions to the drafts in light of your suggestions and plans to distribute the documents to ALA Council prior to ALA Annual Conference in Washington DC. The committee also plans to present them at ALA Council Forum for further feedback.


    Thank you in advance for your suggestions, and please let me know if you have any questions,


    Julia Warga, Chair
    Intellectual Freedom Committee
