Muslim Journeys

The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys is a collection of books, films, and other resources chosen to familiarize the American public about 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.


The Libraries will sponsor three events in 2013. The first event (a screening and discussion of "Prince Among Slaves") was April 8. There will be two more events during the Fall 2013 semester.  Watch the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf and the Diversity Outreach Calender website for updates on upcoming events.
