Founders Memorial Library Exhibits - August/September 2014

"Where Are All the Books?"

Rosanne Cordell, Associate Dean for Public Services, included several books from RBSC in a display of banned books to recognize Banned Books Week, Sept. 21-27. Meant to draw attention to the issue of banned and challenged books, the American Library Association joins librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers and readers to "highlight the value of free and open access to information." The books from RBSC include graphic novels and children's picture books from the Gender Studies Collection, both of which are frequent targets of attempts to have them removed from library collections.
