Academic Freedom for Academic Librarians: Do We Have It, and How Do We Know?

Activity: Talk typesInvited presentation


Connect and Communicate Webinar Series
In this session, Danya Leebaw and Alexis Logsdon will discuss the landscape of academic freedom for academic librarians. Many academic librarians think that we are protected by academic freedom policies, but is that really true? We conducted a survey in 2018, collecting information from hundreds of librarians on their experiences with academic freedom. In this session, we will highlight key findings, including how academic freedom experiences correlate to socioeconomic identities and job status. We will also offer concrete suggestions for exploring your own existing academic freedom protections and ways to advocate for stronger ones.
