Two New Papers: Censorship & Capitalism

The blog is pleased to announce the publication of two new papers in our “Themes Through the Ages” column!:

Jacob Shriner has written a paper about the history of censorship in America. Megan Shepherd has composed a piece about the links between the rise of capitalism and free public libraries.

Mr. Shriner and Ms. Shepherd completed these papers as part of Professor Christopher Proctor’s LIS-S580 History of Libraries in the Department of Library and Information Science at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Find out more about them and enjoy their papers at

Many thanks to both of them for sharing some great research with us!
