Re: Open Records Request

Dear Sir or Madam:
This letter is written pursuant to applicable provisions of the Texas Public Information Act (formerly the Texas Open Records Act).
I request book adoption information for five Fall 2004 courses:
HIST1301 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ United States History to 1876
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· Section 0023063 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Instructor C. Carney
MATH1342 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Elementary Statistics
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· Section 0022861 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Instructor B. Tucker
GOVT2306 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Texas State and Local Government
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· Section 0023056 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Instructor W. Hill
ENGL2307 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Creative Writing
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· Section 0022925 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Instructor William Holt
PHED1167 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Concepts of Physical Activity
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· Section 00223323 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Instructor Leigh Leonard
In particular, I would like to know the following pieces of information about books adopted for these courses:
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· ISBN Number
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· Edition (including sub-edition, like ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œexpandedÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬?)
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· Status as ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œrequiredÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬? or ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œsuggestedÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬?
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· New and used price through the TCC Bookstore
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â· Price paid by the TCC Bookstore to the vendor per unit
If there are required materials other than standard books for these courses, such as software packages, self-published perfect-bound booklets, or other such material, I would like to know the relevant titles, versions, or other identifying information of such material, as well as its cost through the TCC Bookstore.
I have listed the information I wish to receive in relative order of importance. If, for example, compiling price information would delay your forwarding to me the ISBN number, titles, and authors, of the books at issue, I would prefer to receive a partial response rather than wait for completion.
I will accept your response by U.S. Postal Mail to the address at the head of this letter, or by email to [censored].
