The Freedom to Question: Challenges in School Libraries
Adams, Helen R.
School Library Monthly, v26 n3 p48-49 Nov 2009
Many school librarians fear a challenge to the resources in their libraries. This article begins a three-part series on challenges to resources in school libraries. It focuses on an overview of the definition of a challenge, what is challenged, and why, as well as what, happens during a challenge. The second part will explore the concept of whether a school librarian can "challenge-proof" the collection and will include a checklist for preparing for a challenge. The series will conclude with a discussion of what happens after a district completes its reconsideration process.
