DPLA Unveils The Banned Book Club to Support Targeted Communities
The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) created The Banned Book Club, which “makes e-book versions of banned books available to readers in locations across the United States where titles have been banned. The e-books will be available to readers for free via the Palace e-reader app.”
The service uses GPS-based geo-targeting to identify “communities across the United States where books have been banned. When a reader is within a community served by a library that has been forced to ban a book, they can visit [The Banned Book Club] to see the exact books have been banned in their area” and download the books from The Palace Project by setting “Banned Book Club” as their library of choice.
For more information, read the announcement.
