BannedBooksLibrary

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

BannedBooksLibrary is a LTer Project Library that will contain books that were and are banned, challenged, or otherwise censored throughout the world. It's just getting up and started--if you would like to participate in the project, and receive a password to the account, please leave a comment on PhoenixTerran's profile. For more information, please check out this talk thread and the BannedBooksLibrary Group.

Note on LibraryThing policy: LibraryThing is designed for personal and organizational catalogs--books owned, read or wanted by a person or a clearly defined group of people. "List-making" accounts are generally forbidden. For a number of reasons, the Banned Books Library was given special permission to continue as a "catalog" of banned and challenged books. For further information on this decision, please see the conversation with Tim Spalding (starting at message 34) regarding the account.

This group is for general conversation about the project, as well as a place to discuss policies, strategies, standards, and procedures.

When Adding Books
At the minimum:
1) Include a Source tag
2) Include your username in the Private Comments
