I usually refrain from expressing my personal opinions about the world politics on this blog. I believe as a librarian that I should facilitate the information exchange and help my users irrespective of their political views, sexual orientation, religious beliefs. I do believe that as a librarian, I should be a mediator or facilitator of information exchange without acting as a censor of it. However, I do believe in a responsible freedom of speech and press. Nothing in the world merits violence but violence met with violence perpetuates the cycle of death and life. Today, I will not say Je suis charlie or Ahmad. I will simply pray for those who are loosing their lives due to the unjust violence.
I am also providing you with some photos of the newly purchased books at UC Berkeley. Enjoy.
