RE: InfoTrac� College Edition

One of the problems I see is that libraries purchasing these textbooks-all
academic libraries I've worked at do some textbook purchasing--will have
CD's in textbooks that are no longer valid (i.e. they've been "used").This
means students who use the textbooks "next time" will come in demanding
access to infotrac. (Iassume we've all had students asking for floppys and
CD's with books that don't work already)Isn't this just making it more
likely university and college libraries will put in policies that say we
won't buy or accept as gifts textbooks from Wadsworth, Brooks/Cole,
Duxbury, Heinle, Schirmer, and South-Western with CD's?
