Founders Memorial Library Exhibits - August/September 2014
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.
