As you may be aware, there has been much in the news as of late, especially in the USA, regarding censorship in schools. It appears as though there have been some regressions here by way of intellectual freedom. The Canadian Federation of Library Associations has published an official statement, developed by the Intellectual Freedom Committee and approved by the Board of Directors on January 7, 2022. It provides valuable guidance by interpreting our Statement on Intellectual Freedom and Libraries as it pertains to the question of the right to protest and dissent regarding library materials and other forms of expression.

La FCAB-CFLA est ravie de partager avec vous notre énoncé de position le plus récent, développé par la Comité sur la liberté intellectuelle et approuvé par le Conseil d’administration le 7 janvier. Cet énoncé fournit de précieux conseils en interprétant notre Énoncé sur la liberté intellectuelle et les bibliothèques en ce qui a trait au droits de protestations et de désaccords concernant les collections et autres formes d’expression dans les bibliothèques.
