New Library Exhibit Features Science and Religion Books

A new display featuring information about books received from the International Society for Science and Religion (ISSR) will be on display in the Cook Library lobby through July 31.

In 2011, University Libraries received a book grant from the International Society for Science and Religion and was one of 150 institutions worldwide to receive this grant. The collection includes almost 220 scholarly works relating to the interdisciplinary study of science and religion. The original books are available for circulation with a list of books found in the library catalog by searching for “ISSR Library.”

The ISSR was “established in 2002 for the promotion of education through support of interdisciplinary learning and research in the fields of science and religion conducted, where possible, in an international and multi-faith context.” For more information about the organization, go to www.issr.org.uk.

The successful grant application was submitted by Jennifer Brannock and Tracy Englert. For more information about the exhibit or materials, contact Jennifer Brannock at Jennifer.Brannock@usm.edu or Tracy Englert at Tracy.Englert@usm.edu.
