The Future of Community College Spaces - Renovation Gallery
With the increasing numbers of Early College (EC) and Career and College Promise (CCP) students on community college campuses, now is the time to reboot your selection and reconsideration policy. In 2021, there were 729 challenges to library, school, and university materials, the most challenges since the Office of Intellectual Freedom began tracking them in 2000. This session will cover the critical elements for creating an effective and comprehensive written policy for dealing with challenges and reconsideration requests. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with colleagues in actively critiquing existing policies.
It’s in the headlines every day. Libraries are forced to defend their mission of intellectual freedom. Are you prepared? Learn what intellectual freedom means to a community college library and best practices for staff when confronted with a concern or challenge.
