INCOL Spring 2023 Virtual Intellectual Freedom Workshops

Monday, May 22, 2023 – Morning and Afternoon Sessions

Morning Session – 10am to 11:30am

Preparing your Collection Development Policies to Support Intellectual Freedom

Be prepared before Intellectual Freedom challenges come your way.  KCLS and Sno-Isle Libraries share how they updated their policies to be ready for both internal and external materials challenges.

Afternoon Session – 2pm to 3:30pm

Telling the Intellectual Freedom Story:  Strategies to Prevent and Navigate Intellectual Freedom Challenges

A well-informed staff and public are the best defense against materials challenges.   Learn strategies to get your stakeholders on board with IF before challenges occur and hopefully avoid them all together.   

Presenters:   Brenna Shanks, Selector with King County Library System; Jessica Russell, Assistant Director of Collection Services with Sno-Isle Libraries; Lorraine Burdick, Selector with Sno-Isle Libraries; Nancy Henkel, Collection Development Manager with King County Library System
