Just tell the faculty member that it couldn't possibly be a "back up " copy
because after all making one would be illegal and while PROFESSORS
might engage in such behavior , librarians don't

Honestly I don't understand how the faculty member can weasel out
of paying for it as he/she took it and did not return it. Can't you put some
pressure on the department or branch and refuse to give them anything until
they pay for the replacement
