Outreach Opportunity for Academic Libraries: Bridging Cultures Bookshelf (archive - 9/12/12)
Learn how to plan engaging programs about Islamic culture and submit a successful proposal for the ALA/NEH collection development grant, the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys. Attendees will hear from seasoned programming librarians about their prior experiences conducting thematic programs that reach beyond the campus community, inspire partnerships with community organizations, and raise the library’s visibility. The webinar will include a Q&A period to address questions about the Bookshelf application process, as well as information about upcoming cash awards that will support reading and discussion programs featuring the Muslim Journeys materials.
Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the ALA Cultural Communities Fund.
