The Intellectual Freedom Committee of the Oregon Library Association is now accepting nominations for the next IF Champion Award to be presented at the April 2018 OLA Conference in Eugene. Nominations are due no later than Tuesday, February 18, 2017.

Intellectual Freedom Champions can be in any type of library or they might not work in a library at all. IF Champions stand up for the principles of intellectual freedom and help to protect our rights to read and research, help preserve our access to information, and maintain our privacy. The award is given in recognition of the contribution made by an individual or institution that has actively promoted or defended intellectual freedom in Oregon.

The nomination form, along with more details about the nomination process, can be found on the Intellectual Freedom Committee IF Champion web page. If you have questions about the award or nominations, please contact Ross Betzer, chair of the OLA Intellectual Freedom Committee.
