    Bagging Books Brouhaha: Employing Shelf Tags in University of Dallas 

    Shelf Tags are a very important thing to look at in the University of Dallas bookstore. Each tag lists the class number which the book is for. If the teacher has more than one book needed for their class then when you find one book you can see on the left hand corner how many are left for their class.

    Usually a shelf tag looks similar to this one below:

    This year I saw there are “For Rent” tags that distinguish the new system. These have been newly implemented and so hopefully the system makes it easier for students who can’t purchase the book right away to have it ready for class.

    The biggest clue to determine which books are for rent and which aren’t if the “for rent” tab is not on the side of the shelf tag is a section below the prices that says the rental price.

    So pay close attention when in the bookstore. These shelf tags have cleared much confusion.

    Thanks to Manager Matt for allowing the photos to be taken. Thanks to picture taker of photos of shelf tags that were taken by Laura Victor. Through the eyes of a freshman she observes with new eyes the UD system. Her blog can be found here

    Bity Book Bite: Half.com 

    I usually don’t hear about this site often but for those who haven’t found the site yet, it is worth a look.

    The site describes itself as part of an Ebay company and also provides sources for selling videos, DVD’s, CD’s, etc.

    The first page you see looks like this:

    Once there one can use the search engine and look for books just like other sites. In a way it works like Amazon.com, one can set up an account and sell their stuff through their site.

    To find out more here is the link

    I find this site easier to navigate than Amazon.com but that is just my opinion.
