Resources for Educators

The University of Texas Press publishes the results of original research in a variety of disciplines. This section will help you find books that are appropriate for course use.


Examination Copies

At our discretion, qualified instructors of appropriate courses may order discounted copies of books to consider for classroom use. All requests are subject to approval. There is a limit of three print examination copies per instructor per semester.

All books listed at $35 or less are available as examination copies at a $5 nonrefundable fee per copy, paid in advance. There
are no additional charges for shipping. Please note that this policy applies to the full price, not the 33% off discounted price.

We do not provide examination copies of books whose list price is greater than $35, with the following exceptions:

You are welcome to order books priced above $35 at a 33% discount through our website. 


Desk Copies

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.


For faculty members considering a book for course use, please fill out and submit our exam copy form.

For faculty members who have already decided to use a book and have placed a campus bookstore order can request desk copies by submitting desk copy form.
