proudly presents
Southeastern’s 51st Annual Meeting

Friday, June 1st from 9:00am - 1:00pm
This year's meeting will be held at
Vassar College, Villard Room in the Main Building
Featuring a keynote presentation by James LaRue, Director Office for Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association and Executive Director, The Freedom to Read Foundation, who will present a keynote presentation on Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice, and the Signs of the Times.

Intellectual freedom is one of the core values of librarianship. But it hasn’t always been so. And it has been facing new challenges lately. Today, not only books are challenged. Libraries, schools, and universities have been attacked for their programs, exhibits, displays, and even databases. How should today’s librarians navigate a world in which there is both support for social justice, and profound attempts to silence dissent?
