Adams, a retired school library media specialist who teaches a course on intellectual freedom at Mansfield U., examines issues in intellectual freedom faced by library media specialists. She incorporates her experiences and those of other library specialists in her discussion for professionals and students. It is meant to complement the American Library Association's Intellectual Freedom Manual. She discusses minors' First Amendment rights, creating a materials selection policy, material restrictions, privacy and confidentiality, how to handle challenges and complaints, filtering legislation and internet access, access to the facility for students with disabilities, and how to advocate for intellectual freedom.
