Hi Erin,

From: Erin Busch

It is my understanding that there are approximately 80 textbooks that are responsive to your request. The University does not have electronic copies of the textbooks. The textbooks are available for review and examination at the Criss Library at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. If you would like copies of the textbooks, please let me know and I will provide a cost estimate to provide the copies. The cost estimate will be based on an hourly rate for the labor to make copies of the textbooks and will also include a $.25 per page charge. Thank you.

Thank you,
