CSU Bakersfield Computer Science Dept. Book Donation


In December 2008, Dr. Melissa Danforth, a Computer Science professor at CSU Bakersfield (and past LUGOD member), heard that LUGOD was planning on giving away its lending library, which it stopped maintaining in March 2008.

Just prior to our 10th anniversary meeting, she provided a list of books that CSUB's Computer Science department could utilize, which we set aside. The remaining books were brought to the anniversary meeting, and meetings that followed, and eventually the rest were given to the Friends of the Davis Public Library, or (in the case of very out-of-date titles) recycled.


Due to the great distance between Davis and Bakersfield, it took many months to get the books handed off. Eventually, it worked out! LUGOD member Nick Schmalenberger, now living in the SF Bay Area, was able to grab the books in Davis and bring them to the LISA '10 conference in San Jose and deliver them to Dr. Danforth.

CSU Bakersfield CS Dept. Library

In June 2011, Dr. Danforth sent us a draft PDF of a "Thank You" poster that will be posted in the CS department's library. She also hopes to provide a photo of the library and poster, to share with LUGOD.

Bill Kendrick, current president of LUGOD, says: "You're welcome! We're glad our library found a good home!"
