If the integration link goes down or if there is a technical error, Barnes & Nobles may be reached at the home office at LTIsupport@bncollege.com. The integration also allows for faculty and students to send messages to us if certain courses are not found. However, if the professrs have questions about FacultyEnlight or adoptions, their main point of contact would be the Yale Bookstore staff (GM321@bncollege.com) or through their online form.
