Desk Copy Policy


Desk copies are available for any textbook that has been assigned as a primary (not "suggested") text in a scheduled class for the current or following term and is on order with a bookstore. A complimentary desk copy is provided with the understanding that 15 or more new copies of the book will be purchased by students for the course.

If you are considering a book for potential course adoption, please see our instructions for examination copies.

To request a desk copy, find the book on this website with the search functionality, and click on the request link in the lower left portion of the book page. Follow the instructions there.

Some books, due to their wholesale discount, cannot be offered as textbook desk copies, so it is possible that even if these criteria are met we will not be able to provide one.
