Barnes & Noble, Inc. announced a new online book portal for schools across the country to get the books and products they need from Barnes & Noble’s extensive catalog. This free portal is an easy, fast, and efficient way for educational institutions K-12 to purchase and track ordering from Barnes & Noble as well as get access to curated book recommendations and personalized support. Educational institutions should look for an invitation to join Classroom by Barnes & Noble from their local Business Development Manager or put in a request by emailing BulkOrders@bn.com. “In a time when online ordering options for educators are essential, we’re so excited to launch Classroom by Barnes & Noble for educational institutions K-12 across the country to access our extensive and trusted catalogue of books,” said Tracy Vidakovich, Vice President, Business Development for Barnes & Noble. “We have been working closely with educational institutions for decades through our Institutional account/discount program and believe this new portal for buying and managing book and instructional material purchases comes at just the right time.”
New Jersey-based Wainscot Media announced this week that it has acquired a pair of B2B healthcare industry magazines from Scranton Gillette Communications for an undisclosed sum.
The 8x frequency Imaging Technology News and bimonthly Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology, both of which trace their origins back to 1961, will join a Wainscot portfolio consisting of several dozen healthy living, luxury lifestyle and regional magazines, as well as the fashion industry B2B titles Earnshaw’s and Footwear Plus, which it acquired last May.
Both magazines will retain their existing staffs and remain in place in their Arlington Heights, Ill. offices following the sale, Wainscot says, continuing to report to VP and group publisher Diane Vojcanin, who is joining the company from Scranton Gillette.
The acquisition represents a return to medical publishing for Wainscot CEO Mark Dowden, a former longtime exec at Dowden Health Media, which was acquired by Lebhar-Friedman in 2006. Months after that sale, the Dowden family reacquired the company’s four consumer-facing regional magazines, New York Spaces, Bergen Health & Life, Monmouth Health & Life and Morris Health & Life, forming Wainscot Media, which Mark Dowden took over as president before rising to CEO in 2016.
