Bin Laden’s Bookshelf Moves to Russell Tower

If you missed Bin Laden’s Bookshelf in Everett Café, you’ll get another chance to peruse the telling resources of the founder and head of the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda. The Bin Laden Collection of English-language books is now integrated throughout the circulating research collection, housed in Russell Tower, floors five through two, of the Gottesman Libraries. They are available for semester-long check out.

Following the release in May 2015 of information by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence concerning classified, and now, de-classified documents, these resources provide fascinating insight into the former Islamic leader’s beliefs, ideology, and terrorist activity. A former librarian and student new to Teachers College remarked, “Wow! I’d love to look at these books in greater detail! They shed light on important initiatives for world peace  and security, and draw attention to our role as citizens and educators for social justice.”
