ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) is charged with implementing the intellectual freedom policies of the American Library Association through educating librarians and the public about the concept of intellectual freedom as embodied in the Library Bill of Rights, the Association’s basic policy on free access to libraries and library materials. In order to meet its educational goals, the Office undertakes information, support, and coordination activities.

Jason Griffey is an associate professor and head of library information technology at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. His latest book, Mobile Technology and Libraries, is now available as a part of Neal Schuman’s Tech Set. Jason’s previous book, Library Blogging, with Karen A Coombs, is available through Amazon. He can be stalked obsessively at jasongriffey.net and at Pattern Recognition, his personal blog. He is the author of the American Libraries Perpetual Beta blog, and is also a columnist for the ALA Techsource blog. Jason was named one of Library Journal’s Movers and Shakers in 2009 and is regularly invited to speak on libraries, the social economy, mobile technology, and other technology-related issues. He spends his free time with his daughter, Eliza, reading, obsessing over gadgets, and preparing for the inevitable zombie uprising.
