A faculty member just called me, explaining that her students were unable to obtain copies of Understanding Disability Law by Weber. That faculty member called the publisher (LexisNexis), who explained that there was a fire that destroyed copies. The publisher doesn't have a copy of that book anymore, and may not reprint, as far as I understand. The faculty member called me to asked for my digital version of the book that she knows we gave to a student with a disability. I explained that I can't give it to her, (to share with the class), without something form the publisher blessing that course of action.

I am especially intrigued, considering this situation is occurring in a Law, Societies and Justice course. I did point the instructor to the Kindle version of that book so she can relay that to her students.

So heads up - it may be possible if you are requesting books from LexisNexis that they may or may not have digital copies available. I don't know any details about the fire.
