Feedback Invited: What Titles for the Bookstore?

The University Bookstore, now open in its new Sansom Common location, invites all faculty to visit and give feedback on the store's wide range of academic and trade titles, as well as its overall service to the campus community.

As the Bookstore builds its bibliography to over 130,000 titles, the input of Penn's faculty is critical. Please e-mail General Manager Dwayne Carter (dwayne@pobox) with any titles that you would like to see carried in the store. We are particularly interested in academic titles, especially those by faculty and alumni authors, but all other suggestions are welcome. While we are building our inventory, the Bookmaster special order system can assist those faculty members who need titles that are not yet available in the store.

This fall, Dwayne will meet with faculty of various academic departments and provide current bibliographies for each discipline, allowing the faculty another opportunity to review and augment the list of titles.

Faculty are invited to attend one of two September discussion groups: Thursday, September 24, from 4-6 p.m.; or Monday, September 28, from 3-5 p.m. At these introductory sessions, Dwayne and the department managers will discuss the formulation of the bibliographies and solicit feedback on ways to keep them current and comprehensive. Refreshments will be provided. Please join us!
