New committee convened to enhance NMSU Bookstore experience

New Mexico State University's Auxiliary Services hosted an initial meeting Sept. 23 of the newly formed Barnes & Noble/NMSU Bookstore Advisory Committee.

"It's a great opportunity for Barnes & Noble to hear directly from the NMSU-Las Cruces campus regarding their needs and concerns," said Tammy Anthony, the university's assistant vice president of Auxiliary Services. "Similar feedback opportunities will be created in the near future for the four NMSU Community College campuses as well."

The committee includes representatives from the Faculty Senate, Academic Dean's Office, NMSU Employee Council, Associated Students of New Mexico State University and other graduate and undergraduate students. The offices of the Dean of Students and the Associate Vice President for Development are also represented on the committee, as is the Athletics Department, Auxiliary Services and Business, Finance and Human Resources. Representatives from Barnes & Noble Booksellers, the retail chain that operates the NMSU Bookstore, also serve. The committee will meet four times a year to discuss ways in which the Barnes & Noble/NMSU Bookstore may better serve NMSU students, faculty and staff.

In related news, the community is invited to comment on the schematic design presentation of the NMSU Bookstore by Antunovich Associates architectural firm at a public meeting to be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Oct. 6 in the Corbett Center Student Union second floor lobby. The project includes construction of a new, 45,000-square-foot Barnes & Noble/NMSU Bookstore, proposed for University Avenue and Jordan Street.
