This presentation was given at a staff training conference for about 75 staff from a public library system in the BC interior. The system includes 13 branches and one mobile library in cities and towns that range from the very small to a city of over 90,000. The presentation was intended as an introduction to the concept and value of intellectual freedom as well as to issues currently being discussed around IF in the library community and the communities served by the system. Slides detailed procedures specifc to the system for handling challenges to materials or programs have been removed from this file.
