Book Rack Goes On-Line

SALISBURY, MD--"Salisbury State University students can now purchase textbooks online as a result of a partnership between SSU and eFollett.com. We were looking for an online solution that would provide us with the best opportunity to meet the needs of our students," said Kaaren M. Kundell, textbook manager of the Book Rack, SSU's campus bookstore.

"Students can now take their class schedule, log onto the stores Web site and order their books. The process is simple and customer-friendly," said Kundell. The list of books comes directly from us, so students know they'll be getting the exact book that professors are requiring as well as other optional materials.

Students will also find other information at the site including a Whats New page, in-store promotional announcements, feedback for the store, a chat room and store hours. The Web site address is www.salisbury.bkstr.com.

The Follett Higher Education Group provides a host of products and services to the entire college store industry including the world's largest inventory of used textbooks; professional buy back services; retail information systems; contract management services; store fixturing and design; training and professional development programs; consumer marketing campaigns; merchandising programs; Web-based retail solutions; and efollett.com.

Follett Higher Education Group generated more than $1 billion in revenue in 1998 through managing nearly 600 campus bookstores in the United States and Canada; distributing used college textbooks across North America; providing educational materials to distant learning programs; and operating efollett.com, the world's largest online retailer of new and used college textbooks. Follett Higher Education Group has its headquarters in Oak Brook, IL.
