The Oregon Intellectual Freedom Clearinghouse<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/projects/OIFC/index.aspx> (OIFC) is now collecting reports on all types of intellectual freedom incidents at academic, school, and public libraries and institutions. In the past, OIFC collected reports to materials challenges. This expanded scope reflects the changes that the ALA Office of Intellectual Freedom<http://www.ala.org/tools/challengesupport/report> (ALA) made to their challenge report form in January 2017.

OIFC has and will continue to use a very similar report form as ALA, compile the reports we receive from Oregon libraries into an annual report on intellectual freedom issues, and submit our report to ALA. The OIFC will not publish identifying information.

The OIFC and ALA are now collecting reports on the following intellectual freedom issues:


*         Materials challenges (books, movies, music, magazines)

*         Internet-related challenges (filtering, access to computers, use policies)

*         Library services (meeting rooms, programs, author visits, exhibits, hold shelf practices)

*         Patron privacy or confidentiality issues (personally identifying information, circulation records)

*         Hate crime (defacement of library/institution property to target a specific group; use of swastikas or other symbols of intimidation, harassment or assault on library property)

*         Other

You can fill out an online form here<https://goo.gl/forms/jmHxt04RQHLZLMDi1> or download a pdf form<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/projects/OIFC/Report.aspx>, fill it out, and send it back. The pdf form can be sent to Ferol Weyand via:

*         Email to Ferol.weyand at state.or.us<mailto:Ferol.weyand at state.or.us>

*         FAX to 503-378-6439

*         Regular mail to 250 Winter St. NE, Salem, OR 97301

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
Katie

PS: I will be sending this email out on the libs-or, kids-lib, and OYAN listservs too.
