About the Modern Assyrian Heritage Collection History

In-person access to the collection is currently unavailable due to COVID-19. For CSU Stanislaus users with active library accounts, print materials can be requested using the request form located on our COVID-19 FAQ page. Questions? Ask a librarian!

The Modern Assyrian Heritage collection began as a gift from Mr. & Mrs. Francis Sarguis. Titles from the library's current collection were integrated with the titles purchased from Mr. Sarguis' donation to Stanislaus State. The collection includes materials documenting all aspects of modern Assyrian history (approximately 400 C.E. through the present) and culture.

The collection will continue to grow via gifts and donations. If you would like to donate additional books, journals, magazines, audio or video recordings (in a playable format), funds for the purchase of additional items, or suggest items to be added to this collection please contact the Library at, 209-667-3234, or
