Muslim Journeys at Central New Mexico Community College

Editor’s Note: This week we’ll be highlighting Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys programs at two academic libraries. Awarded to more than 950 humanities councils and public, academic, and community college libraries, the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf 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.

New for March at EDSITEment

This month, EDSITEment looks at Willa Cather, celebrates American women in wartime, chronicles American history through newspaper archives, and offers two of the best humanities websites on the web.

Featured Library: Peru Public Library

Because 2013 marks the middle of the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War, programming on this topic is particularly relevant, so this month we’re highlighting Peru (Ill.) Public Library for its full day of programs about what medicine was like during this period. In partnership with the Canal Corridor Association and LaSalle Public Library, the library played host to the 17th Corps Field Hospital.
