Intellectual Freedom: A Response

Document Type



The Office for Intellectual Freedom of the American Library Association

Publication Date



The work librarians do for this blog, and in a deeper sense for the Office for Intellectual Freedom of the American Library Association, is incredibly important. It’s always been important, maybe now more so than ever. The work, that we as librarians do daily, is relevant. We help students, faculty, researchers and clients. Across the spectrum of our profession we have always operated as the human face of change in the world of knowledge and service. We were Google, Amazon and Facebook before any of the tech giants even existed. The work is demanding and in constant flux. I imagine that as redesigned scriptoria were added to the scriptoriums, there was grumbling among the scribes and illuminators that things were moving too fast, too soon.
