California State University, Bakersfield. Walter W. Stiern Library. Project Specifications.
California State Univ., Bakersfield.
The goal of the new Stiern Library at California State University at Bakersfield, as outlined in the introductory comments to these building and design specifications, is to bring together under one roof the various sources of the university's information and knowledge--i.e., library, computing, and media services--and to deliver information physically, electronically, and through broadcast. It is noted that, if the library is to be successful, it must be a humane place which is warm, inviting, and attractive, and encourages students and faculty to use its facilities. The specifications discuss general conditions for the future library, and describe each area, including: (1) the circulation area; (2) the reference area; (3) government publications area; (4) reader areas and facilities; (5) stack areas; (6) media areas; (7) computer access; (8) technical services areas; and (9) administrative offices. Specifications for each area list its square footage, purpose, features and requirements, spatial and functional relationships, services, and equipment required. The appendix serves as an index and also summarizes data about the specifications (e.g., room dimensions). An executive summary with references to the main report, a graphic representation of the campus master plan, and a summary of spatial relationships are included. (SD)
