Product Description: The RFF Superfund National Priorities List Database includes information on 1,134 nonfederal sites on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's National Priorities List (NPL). The database was created by researchers at Resources for the Future to estimate the financial impact of alternative Superfund liability schemes on the size of the Hazardous Response Trust Fund and on major industry sectors likely to bear the cost of cleanup under the current liability scheme. RFF's estimates of the costs of five different liability alternatives are presented in the book Footing the Bill for Superfund Cleanups: Who Pay and How?, published jointly in early 1995 by Resources for the Future and the Brookings Institution. Using the RFF database, it is possible to estimate the effects of different liability schemes on needed trust fund revenues as well as the total responsible party transaction costs and the magnitude of cleanup costs borne by key industry sectors. For each site in the database, information is included regarding: the name of the site and EPA identification number; --the type of facility on the site (such as chemical manufacturing facility, wood preserving facility, co-disposal landfill); --the industry sector most likely to bear the initial cost of cleanup; --the number of potentially responsible parties (PRPs) at the site; whether the site is an "orphan" site, that is, there are no financially viable PRP's; --the data waste was last disposed (before 1980 or 1987); and, finally, --estimated total site cleanup costs, based on average cleanup costs for sixteen different types of NPL sites. This site-specific information is not maintained in any single database at the Environmental Protection Agency. The RFF database includes information from an EPA database produced as a result of interviews the agency conducted in August 1993 of remedial project managers at each site. This "RPM Survey" database is a primary source of some of the information assembled for RFF researchers. The other information in the RFF National Priorities List Database was developed by reviewing and synthesizing data from a number of EPA sources. RFF's estimates of the cost of cleanup for each site built on work performed by the University of Tennessee's Waste Management and Education Institute. The RFF National Priorities List Database is available on PC-DOS disks, both on a 3.5" high density disk (1.44 M) and 5.25" disk (1.2M). This database is also available on the Worldwide Web (http;//

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
