We offer complimentary desk copies to course instructors who have adopted a UT Press book for their class, minimum enrollment of 10 students. Instructors may request 1 copy per 50 students enrolled (10-50 students: 1 copy; 51-100 students: 2 copies; etc.).

Before we can send a desk copy, we must receive a request from the instructor and a minimum, confirmed order of 10 copies per title from the campus bookstore. If additional copies are needed for assistants, they may be purchased, in advance, at a 20% discount. All requests are subject to approval.
