Title: Ban-O-Rama: Orienting Intellectual Freedom in the University Library
Author: Hudson, Dave
Abstract: This presentation offers a critical assessment of Ban-O-Rama, a satirical frosh week event designed and staged by University of Guelph Library to offer students a dynamic space in which to confront matters of intellectual freedom. The initiative's successful staging raised compelling questions about the roles of satire and space in library instruction, but also about what and how libraries teach themselves about intellectual freedom.
Description: Presented on February 3, 2012 at the Ontario Library Association's Annual "Super Conference" in Toronto, Ontario. The speaker is Dave Hudson, Learning and Curriculum Support Librarian at University of Guelph.
