Policy on Desk Copies

Most publishers are happy to provide a desk copy to professors teaching at Western University, subject to availability. Even though The Book Store will not be providing complimentary desk copies, we can still assist in the process. Please follow these steps:

  • Contact the publisher directly for desk copies. Many publishers listed below have an online tool for requesting desk copies. Other publishers may require you to submit your request on University letterhead.
  • The Book Store at Western understands there is frequently a delay between the request for a desk copy and receiving the book. In order for instructors to have a desk copy of their textbook(s) available, the Book Store at Western will allow faculty to purchase a copy from our existing stock. Payment can be made with a PeopleSoft speed code, credit card, debit card or cash. Once you have received your desk copy from the publisher, return the textbook within 30 days of purchase, in brand new condition and with your receipt for a refund.

Publisher Contact Information

The publisher contact information on this page is provided as a service of the Book Store at Western to aid faculty in the selection of new textbooks and ordering desk copies. If information for a publisher not listed is needed please contact course.adoptions@uwo.ca.
