The Interesting Times of Intellectual Freedom

Few individuals are as immersed in intellectual freedom issues as Judith Krug. Fro over 40 years, Ms Krug has fought diligently for intellectual freedom for libraries and the patrons. This pre-conference highlights Ms Krug, as she presents an overview of the most pressing issues facing LIS professionals today. Ms Krug's keynote will focus on the Patriot Act, censorship, disappearing information, and current legal issues in library buildings and spaces. Participants will then have and opportunity to engage in small group discussions around major IF issues, with IFRT Round Table members facilitating. The groups will reconvene and under Ms Krug's leadership, discuss their groups findings.
