I request copies of relevant policies and procedures documents of the TCC Bookstore. Specifically, I request:

Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· All documents outlining policies on deadlines for instructor selection of books for a particular course prior to the start of a term, including if available, generalized timelines. Policies on actually accomplishing the selection are excluded from this request; this request covers only issues affecting timeliness of selections.
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· Any documents shedding light on why the BookstoreÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s policy on releasing required book lists to students or the public was adopted, including the policy on ISBN numbers.
