Loyola’s on-campus and online bookstores will soon be managed under the direction of Barnes & Noble College, an education company owned by the Fortune 500 bookseller Barnes and Noble, starting June 15, according to a press release published by Loyola on June 11.

Barnes & Noble College is acknowledged for its advanced research programs that it offers to college campuses nationwide, according to the press release.

“Barnes & Noble College has the vision to make our bookstore a campus destination, a hands-on support system, and a resource outlet that will help to elevate student success in and out of the classroom,” said M.L. “Cissy” Petty, vice president of student affairs and associate provost of Loyola.

Loyola hopes that the transition in bookstore management will provide lower resource costs for students, according to Petty.

“We are thrilled to work with a partner who will help to increase the affordability of and access to course materials for our students,” Petty said.

The bookstore plans to offer a permanent buyback program, a price matching program to help students get the lowest price possible on books and an integrated system with Loyola’s Blackboard accounts. This system will allow students to place orders on materials needed for specific courses and compare book prices in order to find the cheapest option.

The on-campus store will reopen for business Monday, June 18, 2018.
