"Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys" events

The American Library Association awarded NDSU Libraries the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf grant. According to the ALA,

The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf is a collection of 25 books, 4 DVDs, and other programming resources selected to help public audiences in the United States become more familiar with the people, places, history, faith, and cultures of Muslims around the world and within the U.S. The Bookshelf is intended to address both the need and the desire of the American public for trustworthy and accessible resources about Muslim beliefs and practices and the cultural heritage associated with Islamic civilizations.
