Whose Bookstore Is It, Anyway?
Pulley, John L.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n22 pA41-A42 Feb 4, 2000
Examines the trend away from independent college bookstores and toward outsourcing bookstores to large corporations, thereby sacrificing independence for cost efficiencies. Discusses effects of the profit motive, fear of competition, fear of declining services by private companies, criticisms of high prices, and concerns about book selection. Examples cited include Guilford College (North Carolina) and University of Notre Dame (Indiana). (DB)
