I *really* agree with Shawn. These were my very first thoughts upon reading the original post.

Honestly, if they were asking me to put that much effort into scanning, just to get a PDF, I'd probably just finish scanning out the book and get moving on production instead. That's ridiculous.

Now, if they had an edited, accessible version, and scanning all of that was the price of admission to that accessible version, I might have a different response. However, I somehow doubt that that's the case. ;)

Hi all,
We are attempting to obtain a textbook file from McGraw Hill and received a message I've never seen before from any publisher. I understand the reason they state in the email, but am curious if anyone else has received this type of email when requesting a file needed to produce an accessible alternative format?

Before we process your request, we need the below information –

• Scanned copies of entire two chapter (any two chapters)

• Scanned copies of the Content pages and the Contributor/Bibliography pages.

• Name of the Author, Edition and Copyright year of the McGraw Hill book “Cultural Readings”

Please understand that this work being a possible compilation has a lot of third party material. Hence we will have to look into the scanned pages to determine McGraw Hill rights on them .
Thanks, all!
