2010 Canadian Library Association Survey of Challenged Materials & Policies
This is the 5th annual survey of challenges to library materials and policies that is being conducted by the Advisory Committee on Intellectual Freedom of the Canadian Library Association.
Your responses will help inform the Committee's policy and advocacy work on behalf of the CLA membership. Results are shared widely, for example, with the Book and Periodical Council [of Canada] and the Office of Intellectual Freedom of the American Library Association. The database is available without charge to anyone requesting it.
The purpose of the survey is to gather data about the nature and outcomes of challenges to library materials and policies (e.g., collection management, access to Internet and facilities) initiated in publicly funded, Canadian libraries (e.g, public, school, academic, and government) between JANUARY 1 and DECEMBER 31, 2010.
One form should be submitted for each challenge to an item or a policy.
So that we can share preliminary findings in time for "Freedom to Read Week," please participate by February 7, 2011.
If you have questions about the survey, feel free to contact me at email@example.com or 780-446-8996.
Thank you for participating in this important work!
Alvin M Schrader,
CLA Advisory Committee on Intellectual Freedom
