Each year, the ALA's Office of Intellectual Freedom (OIF) releases its list of the most frequently challenged books. To compile this list, the ALA relies on librarians, readers, educators, and others across the country to report instances of challenges and censorship. However, a March 2011 survey indicates that roughly only 20% of cases of book challenges were reported to ALA. In January 2017, the OIF released this helpful webinar that provides a practical how-to guide for filing such reports, along with an explanation of the importance of reporting. Included in this webinar are clear definitions of "banned" "challenged" and "intellectual freedom" accompanied by helpful examples. In addition to collecting data on challenged books and material, the OIF also collects information about hate crimes in libraries. This webinar covers what kind of actions qualify as hate crimes and how to thoroughly report these incidents.
