Brooks Library Won ALA and NEH Muslim Journeys Grant
James E. Brooks Library won the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf grant sponsored by the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The library will receive the Muslim Journeys collection of books, films, and other resources-along with a one year subscription to Oxford Islamic Studies Online-especially chosen by scholars, librarians, and other humanities educators and program experts. The Library is planning Muslim themed events promoting this collection to help familiarize the public with Islam and the cultural heritage of Islamic civilizations around the world. It is intended to address both the need and the desire for trustworthy and accessible resources about Muslim beliefs and practices and the cultural heritage associated with Islamic civilizations.
