MSU Library celebrates Banned Books Week!

Join the MSU Library and the Bozeman Public Library for Banned Books Week, September 24-30, 2017! Banned Books Week is an annual event that celebrates the freedom to read. The American Library Association says Banned Books Week “highlights the value of free and open access to information.”

Bozeman Reads… Banned Books! is a free event in the Bozeman Public Library Large Community Room on Wednesday, September 27 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. The event will feature community members and writers reading passages from banned or challenged literature. Light refreshments will be served. 

You can also check out these Banned Books displays all week in the MSU Library: 

  • In the Commons Area, you can explore a bookshelf containing some of the most frequently challenged and/or banned books – then you can check one out!  
  • Take a mugshot with your favorite banned book at the “Caught Reading a Banned Book” selfie station. Be sure to tag @msulibrary on Twitter and/or Instagram!
  • Watch the digital Banned Books display on the CyberDiscovery. 
  • Examine statistics about banned books & learn from a history exhibit about book burnings in the United States. It’s important to stay informed about your intellectual freedoms! 

Tell us your favorite banned/challenged books, or a banned/challenged book that you plan to read, in the comments!

Acoustic Atlas features in Ivan Doig symposium

Hear stories and sounds of weather, water, wildlife, and work in the landscapes of author Ivan Doig. Join Acoustic Atlas team members for their session at Doig Country: Imagining Montana and the West, a free symposium at Montana State University on the life and works of the acclaimed Western author.

Session: The Wind from Eden: Soundscapes of Ivan Doig
When: 3:45-5:00pm, Friday, September 15
Where: Innovative Learning Studio, Montana State University Library, Bozeman, MT

Learn how the intersection of the Ivan Doig archive and the Acoustic Atlas at Montana State University Library inspired our effort to capture auditor vignettes of Doig’s landscapes along Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front and Shields River Valley as well as parts of Northwestern Washington.  The session will discuss how these recordings contribute to the Acoustic Atlas, the Ivan Doig collection, and MSU Library programs, partnerships, and outreach.
