Marshall University picked to display Muslim book collection
HUNTINGTON -- Marshall University has been selected to display a collection of books, films and other resources on the history and culture of Muslims.
Marshall is among 842 institutions nationwide picked to receive the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf, which is a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Marshall College of Liberal Arts dean David Pittenger says the collection will enable Marshall students to learn more about Islam and other critical religions.
He says the university and Cabell County Libraries plan to hold several public events to discuss the collection's books and films.
