BYU Bookstore rearranges textbook floor, offers new payment option

Beginning summer term 2009, textbooks at the BYU Bookstore will be shelved alphabetically by author, versus by course and section number. This new approach will require that students print their book lists in order to locate their required course materials.

A student’s book list can be found at www.byu.edu and continuing through the Route Y login to School to My Book List or by going to booklist.byu.edu. Six kiosks will be on hand for students to print their book lists, but with 12,000 students needing their lists, it will be faster to do this prior to arrival at the BYU Bookstore.

“The changes enumerated above will reduce the time students spend locating books, improve traffic flow on the textbook floor and increase the chance a student will find a book in stock,” said Becky Lindsay, marketing specialist for the BYU Bookstore.

Also, starting summer term 2009, students will be able to charge class materials to their university account. This is the same account to which tuition is charged. Only class materials located on the upper level of the BYU Bookstore (excluding computer items) may be charged to the university account.

“This option will help some students relieve the financial pressures encountered at the start of a term or semester,” said Lindsay.

When asked payment type, students should say “university account” and provide their BYU ID. The account is interest free and can be paid online later using a credit card or e-check. Returns are credited back to the university account.

Students should be aware that if their university account is currently on hold they will need to take care of the hold before they can make purchases using the account. Also, if the account balance is not paid by July 31, the university account will go on hold starting Aug. 1. If this occurs students will not be able to register, and other university services may be restricted. Seriously delinquent accounts will be sent to collections.

BYU engineering students are testing radar to track polar bears aboveground. If successful, the team’s work would mark a significant step forward in scientists’ ability to track mother polar bears during winter, when they den and give birth to their cubs beneath dense snowpack. Locating and protecting bear dens is important for conservation efforts.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

May 12, 2022
A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
