Freedom to Read Resources

I'm a proud supporter of the Freedom to Read Foundation

Here are some useful links on the subject of fighting for intellectual freedom:

The National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) has an excellent toolkit for fighting book censorship in schools

The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression (ABFFE) has the Handbook for Banned Books Week

The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE)  has an anti-censorship center

The National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) has a fighting censorship checklist.  Although this is intended for student journalists, it's got some very useful strategy ideas.

You can always trust the "radical militant librarians" (love them!) over at the ALA to fight for our right to read what we want. There are lots of good articles in their site (search for "intellectual freedom" - they've got an office devoted to it)  but here's one about School Library Media Centers and Intellectual Freedom
