r In an effort to alleviate residence
Halls' traffic problems, the UNC
''fcfepartment of Transportation and
Jerking Services is instituting a
, rhove-out plan during the exam
The plan is designed to help
"-students get close to the buildings and
Sm6ve out of their halls relatively
'quickly, said John DeVitto, director
of transportation and parking.
Resembling a moving-in procedure
instituted in the fall, the plan will
eerve several parking spaces in front
vothe residence halls where vehicles
can be loaded without being ticketed
'".or towed, DeVitto said.
- voThere will be a 40-minute time limit
I6n each vehicle using one of the
designated spaces. Monitors win log
'.-the time of entry of a vehicle as well
as make sure the fire lanes stay clear.
The monitors will be personnel
T .fcom the McLaurin Parking Services.
c rBecause of the time limit, students
-should be ready to load all of their
r. belongings before pulling a vehicle
tinto a space, area directors said
."Students need to realize they must
be all packed before they bring their
'Ors around," said Ann Stevens,
Morrison area director.
" Area directors also suggested that
4 students have others help load their
belongings in an effort to streamline

Gary Johnson, Ehringhaus area
'director, said one of the biggest
"advantages would be that fire lanes
f 'Will stay clear. When a large number
k -of people try to get close to the halls,
? -these lanes often get blocked, he said.
cOirjhe spring move-out period is not
as hectic as the fall move-in because
jitv,is spread over a week's period,

-"-'Students expressed excitement
rchbout the system because in the past
sparking near the residence halls
' meant risking getting a parking ticket.
:.o-.i'm sure the program will help;
"J tliey need something like this because
f-3udents need a chance to get their
'things out without having to park
'Illegally and take the chance of getting

'sophomore from Clarkton.
-The residence halls included in the

What can I sell? At each buy-back period we are able to buy only those texts the teaching staff has
indicated will be used again the following semester with the limitation of the number of texts we need in
How much can I get? With this commitment we are able to offer 50 of retail price on books that
publishers classify as text and 331 3 of retail price on all books classified as trade.
What about books no longer used? A buyer will offer you the current wholesale price on all books
that have a value. This price is determined by the law of supply and demand, and if the book has been
in circulation for a long time or is not being used by many other schools, this price will probably be less.
Many students feel their books are worth more to them for their personal library than the amount the
bookstore can offer for them. This you must decide for yourself .
