Re: Andrew Odlyzko's paper on library and publishers

Perhaps the author is referring to the arrangement that the NYU                 
bookstore has with a vendor to manage copyright clearance for                   
coursepacks.  The URL for the bookstore site that describes this                
service is http://www.bookc.nyu.edu/main/text/faculty.html
