Challenge Reporting: Defending our Right to Learn

This week is Banned Books Week, and what better way to honor those intellectual trailblazers whose works were censored than to fight against information suppression yourself? That’s where the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom comes into play. This Office of the ALA offers a ‘Challenge Reporting’ tool, which empowers individuals with the ability to report acts of censorship with the aim of challenging that practice. You can find a link to this tool on the ALA’s website here. All personal and institutional information submitted in these Challenge Reports are kept confidential. So, if you can, take a moment to defend the public’s right to the freedom of information.
