The bilingual volume of the San Diego Poetry Annual, edited by Olga Garcia, continues to be used as a text book at Southwestern Community College.

The college bookstore stocks the bilingual volume for purchase by students in the English composition class taught by Dr. Francisco J. Bustos, a regular contributor to the annual.

In keeping with its policy of creating permanent status for the annual in public and university libraries throughout the region, San Diego Entertainment + Arts GuildĀ  makes copies of the bilingual volume available at actual cost to the college and earns no profit from the sales.
