Thanks for asking! Our catalog displays information at a bibliographic record level rather than item record level - without the librarian speak, only the details that will be true of every copy of something we own - so there's no effective way from the patron side to check the price of a particular book, which can be different from copy to copy depending on how, when, and from which of our vendors we purchased it. Feel free to call us at 402-444-4800 and our staff will be glad to check the replacement cost associated with any item in our collection for you. 

Most often folks are curious about this topic when an item they have checked out has gone missing or gotten damaged - same story, just let us know and we'll work with you to figure out the best approach. Because we have particular ordering processes and suppliers the cost to replace an item may be more or less than you might expect from a traditional bookseller. In some cases we may be able to address minor damage for less than full replacement price. The one thing never to do is purchase a copy from Amazon, etc. -  we can't accept replacements in kind. 

If I've taken entirely the wrong tack on your question and you're curious about MSRP of a current book or pricing of a collectible book, email back and we'll talk about possible sources.  

Thanks for asking and thanks for using AskOPL! Definitely give us a call at 402-444-4800 for assistance.
