Hot Topics: Book Banning: Extending Your Research

Finding Scholarly Articles

 

Use our databases to find scholarly articles addressing censorship and book banning. To learn more about searching for and citing sources, visit our guide Library Research 101: How to Get Started.

Pro Tips:

  • Check the "scholarly" or "peer reviewed" box to get academic articles
  • Change the sorting method so the newest articles appear first
  • Try variations on these keywords: banned books, book banning, censorship, challenged books, prohibited books, and censorship in schools.
  • Other Research Guides that could help you: Race Relations, Education, Domestic Terrorism, and LGBTQ Studies.

 

Finding Books and Government Documents

Search the library catalog for books and government documents about banned books and censorship. In addition to the books that we've suggested on each page, there are many books in our collection that address the many subtopics and issues associated with banning books. 

The links below are subject searches in URSUS (the online catalog).  Change the "System Sorted" drop-down box to "Newest First" to find the most recent publication. Experiment with keywords, you never know what you might find.

If the book you want is not at Fogler Library, use the "Request" link to ask for it from another library - we'll quickly ship it here and you can check it out!
