STAMFORD, CT - The Ferguson Library in Stamford has been awarded a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities to further understanding of Islamic culture. The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf is a collection of books, films, and other resources meant to introduce the American public to the complex history and culture of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

The project was developed by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association based on the advice of scholars, librarians, and other public programming experts. The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf is intended to offer trustworthy and accessible resources about Muslim beliefs and practices and the cultural heritage associated with Islamic civilizations.

As part of the grant, The Ferguson will receive a collection of books and films and year-long access to the database, Oxford Islamic Studies Online. A complete listing of the new collection is available at The Library. The Ferguson is one of 840 libraries and state humanities councils nationwide receiving the Bookshelf.


This special NEH initiative, called Bridging Cultures, engages the power of the humanities to promote understanding and mutual respect for people with diverse histories, cultures, and perspectives within the United States and abroad.
