  • About the Author

This interactive, ready-to-use Intellectual Freedom training program for public library employees is based on American Library Association guidelines relating to intellectual freedom. Defending Access with Confidence provides libraries with step-by-step directions for planning and rolling out a comprehensive training program on access issues, and on how to resolve challenges to access. As a result of this training, library employees will gain an understanding of the history and philosophy of intellectual freedom in American libraries, and will be better able to identify and interpret library policies, and to recognize and respond effectively to challenges to access.
