Barnes & Noble College is proud to announce it has partnered with Cayuga Community College to operate its Auburn and Fulton campus bookstores, bringing both campuses – “what’s next” in college bookstore retailing.

Textbooks, Apparel and More

Both bookstores will sell textbooks, course materials, emblematic clothing, supplies, and sundries.

  • Rapidly expanding selection of eTextbooks – In addition to offering savings up to 60 percent over new printed books, Barnes & Noble’s revolutionary and free Nook Study™ application serves up eTextbooks in an engaging format that enhances the overall learning experience.
  • Generous cash-for-books program – Students with books faculty plan to reuse next semester will be eligible for a 50 percent cash payout, up to needed inventories.
  • Registration Integration – A user-friendly Registration Integration system allows students to reserve and order textbooks immediately after they register for courses online, automatically populating carts with the right books for the right class and making the purchasing process more convenient than ever.
