February 22, 2011 - Cornell Procurement Services, Financial Business Service Centers
We understand the importance to faculty and staff of having a smooth process for purchasing books, so we are pleased to announce that we have found a supplier who will work with the university in a contractual agreement that provides savings and fast service. The new provider is called Completebook.com, and it is available now in e-SHOP with a punch-out catalog.
Cornell turned to the corporate wholesale market to find a supplier for books and publications after well-known book retailers Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble discontinued their contracts with us. Completebook.com is a minority-owned small business located in Austin, Texas, and is the world’s largest online supplier of books and publications for the corporate and educational market. They offer over 2.5 million titles including books, government publications, and audio and video recordings.
