The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in collaboration with the American Library Association (ALA) has awarded Librarian Allan Scherlen and Kim Hall (P&R, and chair of ASU Humanities Council) the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf Muslim Journeys Grant.

This grant provides Belk Library with books, video, and a Islamic Studies e-resource (valued at approximately $2500) to enhance the library's capacity to engage audiences in reflection on and conversation about Muslim cultures and to address the public's need and desire for trustworthy and accessible resources about Muslim beliefs and practices and the cultural heritage associated with Islamic civilizations.  In complying with requirements of the grant, the recipients (in primary collaboration with the ASU Humanities Council and further collaboration with the Watauga Public Library, the ASU Lifelong Learning Institute, and the Muslim Students Association) will host a series of talks, forums, film showings and book discussions to be held during 2013.

Stay tuned for more information on the events planned.
