Confronting the Myth of Neutrality: Academic Libraries, Advocacy, and Free Speech (ALA Annual 2021, On Demand)

This panel features presenters with experience in balancing issues of library advocacy and free speech in academic libraries. Invited panelists will be both librarians and campus administrators or faculty who are knowledgeable about issues and topics currently contributing to the larger conversations happening on campuses regarding library neutrality, libraries as spaces of advocacy and the complications surrounding these challenges.
