State of America's Libraries report

The State of America's Libraries 2013: A Report from the American Library Association is the new digital supplement from April 2013's American Libraries. This very special online-only issue details issues affecting libraries this year and beyond: how communities use libraries; the changing state of ebook distribution and copyright; the rise of digital content; the impact of social media; outreach and diversity trends; a look at the top ten frequently challenged books; and more.  The report explains libraries' transformative potential, notes the focus on digital content, discusses censorship (Captain Underpants was the more frequently challenged book in 2012), and acknowledges the gloomy outlook for school libraries.
