Should I report challenges that don't go through the formal challenge process?
Yes, the State Library encourages you to report any challenges to intellectual freedom issues (materials, privacy, etc.) whether or not they have been through the formal challenge process. This includes any challenges that may be occurring in schools outside the library. The more information we have, the better picture we can paint about the intellectual freedom landscape in Oregon.
Will my name, library name, or city name be published?
No identifying information will be published. However, the State Library will disclose copies of incident reports if a public records request is submitted.
My library already submits this information to ALA’s Office of Intellectual Freedom (OIF). Do we have to fill out another form?
It is very useful to have a record of incidents in Oregon, so the State Library encourages you to submit reports via the OIFC. The State Library shares the OIFC annual reports with ALA so they will receive your information, minus the identifying details, at that time.
