Muslim Journeys Bookshelf
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is conducting a special initiative,
Muslim Journeys: Bridging Cultures
, that engages the power of the humanities to promote understanding of and mutual respect for people with diverse histories, cultures, and perspectives within the United States and abroad. Through the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf grant, Loudoun County Public Library received 200 books and 25 videos on Islamic culture, both historic and contemporary. The books and films comprising the Bookshelf were selected with the advice of librarians and cultural programming experts, as well as distinguished scholars in the fields of anthropology, world history, religious studies, interfaith dialogue, the history of art and architecture, world literature, Middle East studies, Southeast Asian studies, African studies, and Islamic studies.
