Barbara,

     I request permissions all day long for the use you just described. After the book is out of print, reprint royalties are the only way for a pub. to continue to make money. Even with o/p books, 10% is still the rule for a fair use. For some reason, many faculty members believe that out of print means copy freely...which is why universities employ people like me to try to educate the faculty and lessen the instances of infringement. Good luck with informing/educating your public. That is, by far, the most challenging element of my work.
