Learn about UAA’s Student Support Services this week on Informania, as Deb the Librarian interviews Dr. Kim Patterson, Director. UAA Student Support Services (SSS) serves 160 students through this federally-funded program. These students include first generation students, adult students returning to college, veterans, and others who may need additional educational and financial support, but have the will to succeed in college. SSS provides helpful workshops, resources and opportunities, and a mentor relationship as well.
For UAA students interested in these services, but not eligible for SSS, check out the following resources: UAA Tutoring Resources

Henry Miller's 1934 novel Tropic of Cancer was banned from publication in the United States under obscenity laws as illegal pornography until a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1964 lifted the ban. The landmark decision stated that "material dealing with sex in a manner that advocates ideas, or that has literary or scientific or artistic value or any other form of social importance, may not be branded as obscenity and denied the constitutional protection."
