The Information School is thrilled to host Kristin Pekoll as the keynote speaker for Back in Circulation!

Keynote Speaker: Kristin Pekoll
Assistant Director, ALA Office of Intellectual Freedom

Censorship Beyond Books
Just as books can be censored, displays, programs and databases come under fire. Libraries provide resources and services that are essential to ensure equitable access to information for all, including underserved populations. But while libraries are often well-versed in protecting the right to read, many lack policies and experience in addressing censorship and complaints of resources and services on the front line. This presentation will highlight specific case studies and offer practical guidance on safeguarding intellectual freedom beyond book challenges.
