From porn in the library to “Porn is the Library”

Bob writes “While the rest of the country is trying to figure out what to do about pornography the Center for Sex and Culture is busy collecting, cataloging, and in general making sure its available for academics: 12/29/DDG92AHN9T1.DTL
“This is not about titillation; it’s about research. In the growing field of human sexuality, erotica is an indicator of people’s desires, community standards, aesthetic and artistic expression and the intersection where all those things come together.””

Neither the article or the Center’s web site say anything about how access to the collection will work, or whether professional librarians will be brought in to catalog the holdings. The SF Gate article does indicate that the library will be the site of “show and tell”. Read the article if you’re interested.
