Before Making Your Request

We proudly distribute books published by presses around the world. As such, many books listed on our site are not published by UBC Press. Before submitting your request, please check the publisher name (under the author) to ensure it says UBC Press as we cannot process exam copy requests for books by our publishing partners.

Please note that all examination and desk copies are provided at the publisher's discretion and may only be obtained by eligible course instructors who wish to assess a potential textbook before placing a course order.

For digital examination copies, you will have 60 days to review the book. If you choose to adopt the book for your course, we can send you an e-book that does not expire, or a print copy.
