Co-sponsored by the Intellectual Freedom Panel, ACRL-MD brings a program on how book challenges have surged across the U.S. since 2020; they have occurred in every state, including Maryland. Although they are often concentrated in public and school libraries, academic librarians need to be concerned, as well. In this talk, we will discuss the current state of book challenges, how this trend pertains to academic libraries, and specific issues in academic libraries. In addition, we will review ways that all librarians can support one another during these challenging times.
