Brown Library is currently displaying the beautiful new books provided through the National Endowment for the Humanities Bridging Cultures-Asian Studies Grant. This collection was acquired thanks to Virginia Western’s participation with UVA in a program called, “Understanding the Non-West: Strengthening Global Humanities at Virginia’s Community Colleges.” The goal is to boost global humanities in Virginia’s community colleges and enrich appreciation for the cultural traditions, literature, and cinema of India, China, Japan, Eastern Asia, and Russia. Get a sneak peek of this gorgeous collection here.

This special collection is on display through Monday, November 24 on the top floor of the Brown Library Building. These books are also available to be checked out!
