    Hi, All -

    Passing along a message from our colleagues from the Office for Intellectual Freedom - they are looking for bloggers:

    Are you interested in intellectual freedom and censorship? Committed to advocating for social justice issues? Are you a creative and engaging writer? Do you know how to balance text with graphics and hyperlinks? Then we're looking for YOU!

    The Intellectual Freedom Blog is seeking bloggers for a one-year commitment. The blog's purpose is to educate and encourage discussions about intellectual freedom principles, and promote the value of libraries, librarians, and professional membership in the American Library Association. The blog is managed and edited by staff of the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) for use within the library profession and the public to raise awareness of time-sensitive news, issues in the field, upcoming events, helpful resources, and the work of members that is related to intellectual freedom, professional ethics, privacy, or the mission of OIF.

    Visit our Intellectual Freedom Blogger Application for more information. Applicants are asked to send a sample blog post and a brief note describing their job and their interest in blogging for the Intellectual Freedom Blog before the quarterly deadline, November 16th. Send questions to Kristin Pekoll at
