Our Walter Stiern Library is woefully under funded, and the history collection has not kept pace with the scholarship being published. We invite your help!
History Department faculty are creating lists of books in their fields and seeking your help to purchase these. If you are able, we invite you to select a book on the list. Purchase the book (all books in the list have links to sites where they can be purchased) and either bring it to the department office or have it shipped directly here with an email or gift message to alert us to your contribution, which is tax deductible.
Our address is CSU Bakersfield History Department, 9001 Stockdale Hwy., Bakersfield, CA 93311-1099.
You might select a book you'd like to see us have in our collection, or one in a particular field of interest to you. (We aren't picky!) We just ask that, if available, the books are hardbound, as these are much more durable than paperbacks. The library will place a nameplate inside the book, acknowledging your gift.
If you'd prefer someone else to do the purchasing, you may write a check to the Stiern Library Associates in the amount of the book, and they will procure it.
Book donations we currently seek for the WSL (click on the ISBN to search for the book using www.bookfinder.com):
