The Library staff wishes to remind all students that the Library is open to the public, and students should guard against petty thefts by keeping their laptops and other valuables close at all times.

Banned Books Week

This week, the Library’s display cases contain a selection of materials designed to focus on the problem of censorship in America in honor of Banned Books Week.

Banned Books Week is an American Library Association-sponsored event reminding Americans not to take their freedom to read for granted. “Banned Books 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,” states the ALA website (www.ala.org).

The cases display examples of books commonly challenged or banned, as well as a section featuring books involved in important First Amendment cases. Come take a look, and celebrate your freedom to read.

Featured Resource: Election Law @ Moritz

Election Law @ Moritz. Election Law @ Moritz provides information about federal, state and local elections. The website includes election news from around the country and links to litigation documents. Ohio State University Moritz College of Law hosts the website.
