- Course information: term, course number, section/s, title, instructor's name, instructor's daytime telephone number and the enrollment estimate

Instructor's Desk Copies
Publishers can provide desk copies of class texts when sufficient quantities are ordered for the campus bookstore. Before placing your request, please check the publisher's Web site for desk copy request procedures, as individual publisher guidelines may vary. You may want to place your bookstore order first, as many publishers ask for proof of a bookstore order before they will send a desk copy. Otherwise, they may choose to send you an exam copy or hold your request until the text has been ordered for your course. Use the form provided by the Office of Academic Support Services or order online direct from the publisher. Below are some links to select publishers' online desk/exam copy ordering information.
