Research and information on censorship and banned literature


Welcome to the main page for the Loras College Research Guide on censorship!

This Research Guide was created by an Honors Collaborative Interdisciplinary Project (CIP) group researching censorship. Their research led them to the Catholic Index of Forbidden Texts, a historical case of censorship that relates to the Loras College library, as well as more modern cases of censorship worldwide. They created this Research Guide to catalog the books Loras has in their library that were on the Index of Forbidden Texts, but it also includes information on Censorship, Modern Banned Literature, and Banned Books Week

For more information about their project, please visit their website at
