The new tenth edition of the “Intellectual Freedom Manual,” published by ALA Editions in collaboration with ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) is now available. This new edition was made possible with the help of UVM Libraries' own Trina Magi (Assistant Editor). Both in and out of the library, Trina works tirelessly to advocate for privacy and intellectual freedom.
