Materials Challenges: Prepare for the Worst, Expect the Best
October 14, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Material challenges in libraries are nothing new. Today challenges are moving past displays and specific books and onto online content, social media presence/posts, book clubs, or inclusive reading initiatives. Library staff serve their public best when prepared with a clear policy and guidance about collection development as well as a resource challenge process. Is your old policy good enough to address the new world of intellectual freedom?
Learn what libraries should do to be responsive and not reactive to potential resource challenges. Our panelists, Becky Calzada, Leander ISD; Kristin Pekoll, Office of Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association; and Peter Coyl, the Director of the Montclair Public Library and Vice President of the Freedom to Read Foundation, will share insights, tools, resources, stories and more to help you navigate the new world of intellectual freedom.
Please submit questions prior to the webinar. The panelists will address questions received in advance, in addition to those posted the chat during the session.
Cost: Free for TLA members; $25 for nonmembers
