Library work can engage or be motivated by our ethical, political, and moral beliefs, as well as our professional values. What happens when these values and beliefs are called into question during the course of our work in readers advisory, collection development, programming, instruction, or scholarship? Panelists will provide an overview of academic and intellectual freedom concepts, and discuss scenarios and potential protections that might apply to library workers in private and public-sector organizations, as well the benefits of union membership.
