With the end of the year, American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom (ALAOIF) is compiling the yearly list of most frequently challenged books. ALAOIF collects information for the challenge database from media reports and from reports submitted by individuals especially State IFC chairs. I would greatly appreciate if you could send me any information on challenges in your institution during 2009. Challenges reported to ALA by individuals are kept confidential and any report can be cross-checked with existing entries in the database. You may report challenges by filling out and submitting OIF’s database form (available at http://tinyurl.com/ya4ehpp) or you may simply email me the details of the incident and I can fill out a form on your behalf. If you have any questions at all, please let me know.
Thank you for your help.
