Feedback form is now closed.
Over the last two years, librarians representing a wide range of academic, school, and public fields, have worked to update the ALA Selection Policy Workbook. With its new title and expanded scope, the Selection & Reconsideration Policy Toolkit for Academic, School, and Public Libraries is an excellent resource to evaluate your current policies on selection and reconsideration. During this session, a member of the working group will highlight areas of the toolkit of special importance to school libraries and lead a discussion on leading the revision of existing school and district level policies. This session and this resource will enable library professionals to rationally and confidently defend their collections, support intellectual freedom and protect their libraries from censorship.
