New laws and legal and ethical opinions continue to appear and help inform the daily response school librarians have to current issues. This volume updates all included articles with current legal thought and opinion. Intellectual freedom expert April Dawkins, PhD and editor, offers practical advice and commentary throughout. Includes up-to-date coverage of a wide range of intellectual freedom topics Looks at current and applicable laws Features important topics for discussion in LIS classes Immediately usable in schools, and for school district staff development on these important and relevant topics
