Desk Copy Policy
We provide free "Desk Copy" books to the instructor for books selected by the school or an educational institution as course materials. Qualified instructors can use the "Desk Copy" under the following conditions. Please request it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- "Desk Copy" of the required course is limited to one book. If the expected enrollment of the course is over 50, you can use the second "Desk Copy."
- An additional "Desk Copy" exceeding the first two books can be purchased at a 30% discount of retail price. (Shipping fee separate)
- Please use the department letterhead when requesting a "Desk copy." The letterhead should include the name of the lecturer, the duration of the lecture (annually, quarterly, etc.), the start date, the number of expected students, the purchasing bookstore and the office address (including telephone, fax and e-mail addresses). If you attach a book order from a bookstore or institution, you will receive a "Desk Copy" more quickly. "Desk Copy" cannot be delivered to your residence and must be shipped to the address of your school or educational institution.
- Only a "Desk copy" can be obtained if it is selected as the mandatory teaching material. You cannot receive a "Desk Copy" as a supplemental teaching material or reading material.
