News brief

Follett Higher Education Group now manages Hunter College’s bookstore, operated by Barnes and Noble until last semester. The largest textbook distributor in the United States, Follett began their takeover of the bookstore last semester and is now fully operational, just in time for students to buy books for the semester.

Follett runs the bookstores at many colleges nationwide, including several other CUNY institutions. In terms of textbook availability and pricing, little has changed for Hunter. However, Follett does offer a more extensive buyback program and new rental options for students.
