The request must be on departmental letterhead, or if sent by e-mail it must include all details of institutional affiliation. The request should state the name of the course, semester of offering, and its estimated enrollment. If the book has already been adopted, then TCU Press sends one desk copy free of charge.TCU Press can no longer fill multiple desk copy requests. If the book is being considered for course adoption, TCU Press will send the book along with an invoice at a professional discount of 25% off the list price. You may consider the book for a 60-day trial period and then either:

  1. Send notice that the book has been adopted and keep the book free of charge (invoice cancelled).
  2. Keep the book for personal use and pay the 25% discount invoice.
  3. Decline to adopt the book, return it to TCU Press in salable condition, and thereby cancel the invoice.
