TLA Helpline

The TLA Intellectual Freedom Helpline will connect librarians facing materials challenges or with questions about intellectual freedom issues to other Texas librarians who have volunteered to share their expertise, resources, and support. The Helpline coordinators who assign the cases will make every effort to match individuals to volunteers with similar library experience.

NOTE: Allow three business days for your request to be processed and a volunteer to contact you. If you have an emergency issue, please contact Wendy Woodland at TLA.

Request Assistance

Information provided on the online form is only shared with TLA staff and the TLA Intellectual Freedom Helpline coordinators. Conversations between those seeking assistance and the volunteers is confidential and you may request to remain anonymous. Please allow a couple of days for your case to be assigned and the volunteer to reach out.

We are excited to launch this new program and hope that it will prove valuable. If you have suggestions for improving the process, or questions about the Helpline, please email us.
