It depends on where the "Stephen's Center Bookstore" information is held.
If it's in the first field of a form page, for example, the titled links 
option in the extended markup recipe will do this automatically. For an 
example, see
and hover over the page number.

We could probably modify this to meet your needs. If you start the
profile page with a heading:

!!!Stephen's Center Bookstore

it will automatically appear in the tool tip with this recipe.
