Glendale Community College in California will privatize struggling bookstore

Glendale Community College officials are pushing forward with plans to outsource the student bookstore, announcing Monday that a contract agreement could be in place as early as next month.

The college began soliciting proposals in May from private bookstore operators to take over the store, a move expected to bolster revenue and customer service while simultaneously transitioning the operation into an era of digital copy.

“A growing number of colleges are asking private companies to manage their bookstore operations,” said Paul Schlossman, dean of student affairs.

Glendale Community College received proposals from the three biggest names in the business — Barnes & Noble College Booksellers, Follett, and Validis, a subsidiary of the Nebraska Book Company — Schlossman said. A formal contract will be brought before the college Board of Trustees sometime next month, and the new operator could be in place for the start of the spring 2012 semester.
