Banned Books Week? What's up with that?
In keeping with its fundamental belief in academic freedom and freedom of speech, the University Libraries supports the American Library Association in its yearly Banned Books Week campaign September 27- October 4, 2008.
As noted on the Association's website, Banned Book Week "celebrates the freedom to choose or the freedom to express one's opinion even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints to all who wish to read them."
Display cases highlighting Banned Books Week, including a list of books banned in U.S. schools and public libraries in 2007, are located on the first and second floors of Lied Library.
