- A Last Minute Rant From The Editor (no editor’s notes this issue)
In mid-July, BiblioDirect unveiled a new look that improves upon the basic site design it has had since its inception a little over a year ago.
Here’s what is new or improved at http://www.BiblioDirect.com
— Softer, easier-on-the-eyes colors.
— The basic search is now located in a more traditional spot on the page.
— Easier to find search tips that are written for the more casual book buyer.
— “Today in History” is back with interesting tidbits about the day along with literary births and deaths.
— Information (address, email, phone, shipping terms, return policy, and payment options) about each of our dealers is now easier to access
— A new “Now Featured” segment allows us to focus on a particular book, a specific author, or a general subject and lead buyers to more information about all the items in the BiblioDirect database that tie into the featured topic.
Effective June 1, 2003, BiblioDirect reduced its monthly fees for dealers and added a very modest service charge. It guarantees dealers that orders through the site must be at least twice the monthly fee or only the service fee will be assessed. Dealer information is available at http://www.bibliodirect.com/dealer_info.php and a dealer application at http://www.bibliodirect.com/dealer_app.php
BiblioDirect, with quality books from quality dealers, continues to attract more and more quality buyers.
