Books are back in style

November 24, 2009

Ok, ok, I know you’re probably tired of hearing about the bookstore. But I have actual news to share!

In response to a recent question on UAF’s grapevine, Robert Holden said that books will be returning to the brick-and-mortar store on campus! The change is for spring semester, so this must be one of the changes that Chancellor Brian Rogers alluded to at his open forum a few weeks ago. In response to a question about the bookstore’s retail offerings, Holden wrote, “In January Follett will bring a portion of the core textbooks on campus, providing additional opportunities for students purchasing textbooks.”

Holden is the Associate Director of Auxiliary and Business Services, so he’s a pretty reputable source on this. If he says books are coming back, I’ll believe him. What’s left to be seen is what books are considered “core” and how the change will pan out.
