Coming This Fall to a School Library near You: The Challenged, the Banned, and the Filtered
Ballard, Susan
Knowledge Quest, v43 n5 p32-37 May-Jun 2015
Important happenings related to the concept of intellectual freedom (IF) coincide with the annual back-to-school ramp up. This article discusses how to use the summer hiatus to develop learning opportunities related to events such as Banned Books Week (BBW) and Banned Websites Awareness Day (BWAD). The author provides resource information to aid in observing these events. Helen Adams, Michelle Luhtala, and Christopher Harris share their insights on what school librarians can do to develop programs to observe BBW, BWAD, and deal with filtering issues as well as ensure the development of school communities that value the concepts of intellectual freedom.
