Banned Books Week Calls Attention to YOUR Right to Be Informed

Display Hightlights “Banned Books Week”

This week we join the American Library Association and libraries across the country in calling attention to the infringement of your right to read by those who seek to ban books from libraries and other venues. The ALA has published its 2015 list of most challenged books. You’ll note that both fiction and nonfiction books are included, and the reasons that bans were sought vary. Librarians believe that the worth of a book is to be judged by each reader, and that the sharing of ideas and subjecting them to open discussion is the best way to promote discerning judgment in a free society. Please stop by the library to look at our display of posters and on the digital screen, created by Lisa Wernke and Susan Boland.

    Of Special Interest This Week

    Please take a look at the library’s display on Civil Liberties After 9/11. Also, please note our featured databases, Bloomberg BNA Privacy & Data Security Law Resource Center, and our Featured Study Aids in the West Academic Series, Principles of Counter-Terrorism Law and Presidential Power Stories.

     
    *This post was edited to correctly state that Constitution Day recognizes the date of the adoption of the Constitution by the Constitutional Convention, not the date of its ratification.
     

    A Few Thoughts on Personal Safety for You and Your Property

    The College of Law and the Marx Law Library are generally as safe as any other space on campus. Because you likely spend much of your day, and sometimes perhaps night here, we offer a few tips to help improve your awareness about maintaining your safety.

    • Do not leave any valuable property unattended in a public place. Notebook computers, tablets, phones, and handbags can be removed very quickly. Always leave valuables in a secured location or ask a trusted colleague to keep an eye on them while you briefly step away.
    • Take advantage of the university’s Night Ride program to avoid traveling alone at night. Contact them at 556-RIDE (556-7433).
    • Report any suspicious activity to staff or to the University Police Department: from a cell phone call 556-1111.
    • We want you to continue to enjoy a safe environment that contributes to your success!
