My blog on wifi Exeter has more on the apparent decision to provide web access rather than a bookshop when Exeter campus returns to normal early next year.
Is there another university with a policy not to have a bookshop as in selling paper books?
The building costs have been multiple millions. My guess is that the costs of a bookshop startup are not of great interest to Blackwells or Waterstones at this time. Anyone know where else there might be investment?
If you have a campus with a bookshop, maybe best to leave it alone.
