This manual, produced by the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom, explains and provides guidance on the practical application of principles of intellectual freedom to library service. The historical development of intellectual freedom and an overview of current issues precede a presentation and explanation of the Association's Library Bill of Rights. Suggested procedures and policies are then presented, organized by topic area and covering such issues as user behavior and library usage, library access by impaired individuals, privacy and governmental intimidation, guidelines related to the Internet, and documents related to library resources. Finally, nine short articles broadly addressing intellectual freedom and the law, preparing to preserve and protect intellectual freedom, and working for intellectual freedom are presented.
