Stepanovych’s 1st Amendment / Banned Books Awareness Project
Kick off September 25th 2010 in conjunction with the American Library Association Banned Books Week. Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Loosely modeled after a scene from George Orwell’s 1984 and drawing from the words of Orwell and Bradbury regarding censorship. This instillation features a video of 46 of the Radcliffe Publishing Course Top 100 Novels of the 20th Century that have been the target of ban attempts. The scene is a representation of a world where censorship has “cleansed” society… dreary, dull, used, and without “life”

Community Virtual Library Banned Books Week 2010 Essay Contest – Deadline Sept 24/Winners announced Oct 1

Banned Books Week 2010 Essay Contest

Presented in Second Life by Community Virtual Library

Deadline September 24 – Winners announced October 1

Drop entry notecards to the inventory of Algar Seelowe or mail to: sixsunflowers@gmail.com

You are the director of a public library serving a suburban, middle class/blue collar community of 50,000.  Your community is diverse and and use of library services is high.

A group of concerned citizens has challenged a book in your collection and is pushing hard for its removal.  Your library board is supportive of you but concerned.  Most have businesses/firms which depend on community support to survive in these difficult economic times.  They’ve asked you to speak to them about why the library and they should risk the ire of citizens who want this book removed from your collection.  After all, “it’s just one book.  What’s the problem in removing it?”

You will need to convince your library board in your speech to them to keep this book in your collection, and in doing so instill in them an understanding of open access and the importance of a library collection that is diverse as well as challenging in providing ideas and situations that are not part of their “norm.” These are not librarians.  They are your neighbors and the governing body of your library… library users who want to know what is so important about “just one book.”

LIMITS:

–Your speech should be at least 250 words long.

–You’re limited to books in the American Library Association’s list of most frequently challenged books, 2007-2009:
http://www.ala.org/ala/issuesadvocacy/banned/frequentlychallenged/21stcenturychallenged/2009/index.cfm
http://www.ala.org/ala/issuesadvocacy/banned/frequentlychallenged/21stcenturychallenged/2008/index.cfm
http://www.ala.org/ala/issuesadvocacy/banned/frequentlychallenged/21stcenturychallenged/2007/index.cfm


–Your entry speech should be dropped in Algar Seelowe’s inventory inworld in on a notecard with a title, “BBW Speech” by September 24   (or email it to
sixsunflowers@gmail.com with a subject line, “BBW Speech).

–Your Speech should be in English.

–You are giving your speech to your library board.  Keep in mind that this is a public library and that your board consists of nonlibrary folks

Banned Books Week 2010 Trivia Game Show on ALA Island in Second Life on Thursday, September 30th @ 12pm – 2pm PT/SLT

Banned Books Week 2010 Trivia Game Show on ALA Island in Second Life

Thursday September 30th @ 12pm – 2pm SLT

SEEKING CONTESTANTS

Do you like books? Do you know everything there is to know about the likes of Harry Potter and Holden Caulfield? Then you just may be the perfect candidate to match wits at our Banned Books Trivia Game. ALA Island is looking for contestants for our very first Banned Books Week Trivia Game Show (At Banned Books Week Town Square, <http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ALA%20Island/202/46/61>)!

In the style of Jeopardy our host Bryan Anderton will lead three lucky contestants through three rounds of banned book related trivia. As they play our contestants will gain (and lose) points. Once Final Jeopardy is played the contestant with the most points is declared the winner.

And while winning itself is, of course, a huge honor, that’s not all that’s at stake! First prize takes home 500 L$ as well as those prestigious bragging rights. Not to worry, our runners up will be rewarded as well, as thanks for playing.

If you’d like to sign up to be a contestant IM ALA Island manager Kay Tairov in SL by September 21st.

Banned Books Week (BBW) is the American Library Association’s annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment.  Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.

Intellectual freedom—the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular—provides the foundation for Banned Books Week.  BBW stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints for all who wish to read and access them.

The books featured during Banned Books Week have been targets of attempted bannings.  Fortunately, while some books were banned or restricted, in a majority of cases the books were not banned, all thanks to the efforts of librarians, teachers, booksellers, and members of the community to retain the books in the library collections.  Imagine how many more books might be challenged—and possibly banned or restricted—if librarians, teachers, and booksellers across the country did not use Banned Books Week each year to teach the importance of our First Amendment rights and the power of literature, and to draw attention to the danger that exists when restraints are imposed on the availability of information in a free society.

Banned Books Week is sponsored by the American Booksellers Association; American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression; the American Library Association; American Society of Journalists and Authors; Association of American Publishers; and the National Association of College Stores.  It is endorsed by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.

How are they being used by libraries and library-related organizations? What factors should libraries consider in deciding whether or not to develop a virtual world presence? What is the future of librarianship in virtual worlds? What resources and skills are needed to start and sustain a virtual world library presence?
