NYLA Intellectual Freedom Committee

Charge

The Intellectual Freedom Committee (IFC) serves as a liaison between the NYLA membership and the ALA Office of Intellectual Freedom (ALA-OIF), and maintains a strong partnership with NYLA's Intellectual Freedom Roundtable. The IFC promotes the use of ALA-OIF resources and services within New York State, and acts in concert with NYLA's Legislative Committee to determine whether an intellectual freedom issue has a state legislative component. The IFC also administers the NYLA Intellectual Freedom Award.

Composition

The chair is appointed by the NYLA President-Elect for a one year term, with start and end dates coinciding with the Annual Conference.  The NYLA President-Elect also appoints two at-large members who serve for a three-year term, with start and end dates coinciding with the Annual Conference.  Each Section may appoint a representative to serve on the committee for a renewable one-year term, with start and end dates coinciding with the Annual Conference.
