ACRL’s Intellectual Freedom Principles for Academic Libraries

ACRL Intellectual Freedom Principles

The following is from the Association of College & Research Libraries’ (ACRL) Intellectual Freedom Committee:

“A strong intellectual freedom perspective is critical to the development of academic library collections and services that dispassionately meet the education and research needs of a college or university community. The purpose of this statement is to provide an interpretation of general intellectual freedom principles in an academic library setting and, in the process, raise consciousness of the intellectual freedom context within which academic librarians work. These principles should be reflected in all relevant library policy documents.”
