Short-term loan in our Reserve collection

Q: I noticed that for BUS 207 and Bus 312, the only textbooks available are in the Surrey Fraser Library when most students taking the courses are in Burnaby. Anyway way we could have at least one copy of each in the Bennett library too?

A: In general, I try to spend the majority of our limited business book budget on titles that will supplement the required texts being assigned in courses. I can't buy enough copies of required texts to support the whole class, so I focus on the other material you'll need for your coursework.
