Hello, everyone. The purpose of this blog is to monitor various forms of censorship, here in America, and around the world. I will post brief summaries of news items on this subject, beginning soon. Comments are welcome. My name is Stephen Denney. I work at the library of the University of California, Berkeley, cataloging books. I also have been the Vietnam country specialist for Amnesty International USA, and participate in IFForum, an online unmoderated forum sponsored by the American Library Association's Office of Intellectual Freedom.
