Desk copies (complimentary or examination copies) of textbooks are usually available to instructors through the publisher. Generally, desk copies must be requested by the faculty member on division letterhead. Most publishers preclude the Campus Store from requesting desk copies.

When a faculty member needs a desk copy immediately, they will need to provide a copy of the departmental requisition form completely filled out to purchase a copy from the Campus Store. The faculty member assumes the responsibility of returning the book within 60 days of purchase in excellent condition for a full refund to the department.
