Faculty Desk Copies

Department offices obtain complimentary desk copies directly from the publishers. Desk copy request forms for this purpose are available in department offices or from the Textbook Department.

When desk copies are needed before the complimentary copy arrives,

  • the faculty member may purchase the copy, asking the cashier to mark "DESK COPY" on the receipt, or
  • the department may raise a purchase requisition, clearly marked "DESK COPY". Bring or send this requisition to the Textbook Department to obtain the book.
PLEASE NOTE: The book must be in stock in the Textbook Department. Books special ordered or purchased through the General Book Department are not eligible for credit and cannot be replaced with a desk copy provided by the publisher.

Unmarked replacement copies from the publisher may be returned to the Bookstore within eight weeks from start of class for credit or refund. A copy of the original requisition or the personal receipt marked " DESK COPY" must accompany the book to enable us to issue the credit or refund.
