IFRT Monthly Video Series

Have you watched the new IFRT Monthly Videos Series? I am excited to see how this project develops and how colleagues agree to participate on it.

So far the series include a video with Barbara Jones, Director of ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom:

Also, videos about Privacy and Libraries, and Intellectual Freedom and LIS Instruction.

More national and international colleagues are scheduled to participate! In the meantime, I have copied the announcement of the series below (from the OIF Blog):

The Intellectual Freedom Round Table (IFRT) has begun a monthly video series to promote intellectual freedom among ALA members.  IFRT chair, Loida Garcia-Febo, the creator of the series, has the following to share:

My vision for this video series is to put Intellectual Freedom and Human Rights on the agenda of library workers. As chair of the Intellectual Freedom Round Table, I would like every ALA member to know more about the work we engage in and the reasons for it. I find that videos are a powerful tool to accomplish this task.

The IFRT community is composed of terrific colleagues and I want to share that with our membership. Our first video features Barbara Jones, director of the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom, who will share news about issues dealt with by her office. Other videos feature Kent Oliver, president of the Freedom to Read Foundation, Dr. Carrie Gardner, Martin Garnar, Douglas Archer, and Carolyn Caywood. International colleagues working in the area of human rights also are scheduled to participate during the next few months.

We hope you enjoy these videos.  If you have any topics you would like to see featured in upcoming videos, please contact Loida directly at loidagarciafebo@gmail.com.
