Sticker Price: $12,495.00

3 For the same price as the library's yearly subscription to Theoretical Computer Science, you could own this "Pave X" ring from Tiffany's. Twenty-eight diamonds, totaling.89 carat weight, are set in 18 karat gold with blue enamel. Sticker Price: $14,610.00

4 A seven-day, first-class Princess cruise for two through Alaska's glacier territory costs the same as the library's annual subscription to Chemical Engineering Science. Ocean-view deluxe stateroom and all meals included. Sticker Price: $4,045.00

5 Harley Davidson promises that this 883 Sportster Hugger motorcycle will deliver "raw- boned experience of the open road." And the price? About what the library pays for a year's subscription to Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering. Sticker Price: $6,365.00
