Our second Library 2.023 mini-conference: "Banned Books and Censorship: Current Intellectual Freedom Issues in the Library," will be held online (and for free) on Thursday, June 8th, 2023, from 12:00 - 3:00 pm US-Pacific Time.

With book bans all over the news, intellectual freedom is under attack, with a specific focus on materials and programs related to or representative of marginalized communities. In this Library 2.0 mini-conference, we will examine the current trends in censorship and explore solutions for how to promote our principles in an era of increasing polarization. We will also explore the dilemmas that arise at the intersection of intellectual freedom and social justice.

Our special conference chair is Martin Garnar, editor of the 10th edition of the Intellectual Freedom Manual and past chair of the ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee, who has been involved in developing ALA policy on intellectual freedom for 20 years.

We look forward to gathering online with you for this event!

About the organizer

Welcome to the Learning Revolution.

The Learning Revolution Project holds online and physical learning events, and highlights professional development opportunities from a network of 200 partners in the learning professions. The great majority of these events are free to attend. We also highlight good conversations about learning taking place between educators, learners, leaders, and others from the school, library, museum, work, adult, online, non-traditional and home learning worlds. The technologies of the Internet and the Web are reshaping when, where, and from whom we learn--and even how we think about learning. As the boundaries of these learning worlds increasingly overlap, we believe these conversations will be critical to framing and preparing for the learning revolution starting to take place.
