CLA Challenges Survey for 2014 Calendar Year

Did your library deal with a book or policy challenge in 2014?
The CLA Intellectual Freedom Advisory Committee is conducting their 9th annual survey of challenges to library materials and policies initiated in publicly funded, Canadian libraries (e.g., public, school, academic, and government) between January 1 and December 31, 2014.

Results are shared widely, for example, with the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions, the Book and Periodical Council [of Canada], and the Office of Intellectual Freedom of the American Library Association. (An anonymized version of the database is available without charge to anyone requesting it.)

Submit one form for each challenge to an item or a policy.
Please participate if at all possible by February 10, 2015. (the survey will remain open until March 31, 2015.)

Questions about the survey? Contact Alvin M Schrader, Convenor, 2015 CLA Intellectual Freedom Advisory Committee.
