Yes. There are also bread lines. There are homeless shelters.
There are charities.  You sound like Scrooge. To suggest to
students, workers and scholars that  the answer is inter-library
loans and/or copying (which, btw, the publisher might not
appreciate and is probably illegal) shows great insensitivity.

Indeed, there are frustrations to be expected  over that period of
time.  That is why I am so encouraged to _stay_ as coordinator.
There are now eighty-seven (87) members of OPE-L.  You are the
only one (1) that has called for my resignation.  That is an _excellent_
approval rating.

We have an Advisory Committee.
