Beth Kraemer, Director of Emerging Technology in the UK Libraries (SL: Alice Burgess), has created a new exhibit “UK Island Observes Banned Books Week” in the virtual Young Library space on the island.  This year marks the 30th anniversary of Banned Books Week – the theme is “30 Years of Liberating Literature.”

Here’s the SLURL if you want to visit the new exhibit on the UKSL island:

The exhibit includes links to information on Banned Books Week, several Social Media “boards” (live Twitter searches), and a table with a few banned/challenged book objects that link to the full text via Project Gutenberg.
