Brent, if you're talking about the CC library, then I can provide answers.

Nope. The CC library will sell to anyone with cash or a CC accounting
number (yes, Brent, you could charge manuals to your violet account :-).

The library made a stupid mistake. They didn't think that many people
would want them (which is probably correct - anywhere but at a large
university) and ordered hundred+ of the basic four, and 22 (count'em,
twenty two) of the administrators manuals. The CC staff immediately
got those.
