Newsletter on Intellectual Freedom /Journal of Intellectual Freedom and Privacy

Sample Cover of In Libris Libertas: The Journal of Intellectual Freedom and Privacy

 

In May 2016, the Newsletter on Intellectual Freedom will re-launch as the Journal of Intellectual Freedom and Privacy. 

The new publication will incorporate many of the features of the Newsletter on Intellectual Freedom. Readers will still read in each issue about the latest incidents of book banning in “censorship  dateline,” the latest court rulings in “from the bench,” legal controversies in “is it legal?” and, of course, “success stories.” New ALA intellectual freedom policies and reports to the ALA Council from the Intellectual Freedom Committee and the Freedom to Read Foundation will also continue to appear.

But the new journal will add refereed essays and peer-reviewed articles on intellectual freedom and privacy, as well as book reviews, legal briefs and opinion pieces.  Our goal is to have the Journal of Intellectual Freedom and Privacy at the center of discourse on intellectual freedom and privacy issues in libraries.
