More about Muslim Journeys:
The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys is a collection of books, films, and other resources chosen with a view to familiarizing the American public with Islam and the cultural heritage of Islamic civilizations around the world. It 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.
Through it, NEH and ALA provided 950 humanities councils and public, academic, and community college libraries—and in turn their patrons—with a selection of resources chosen especially for public audiences, based on the advice of scholars, librarians, and other humanities educators and program experts.
