Like other scholarly publishers, the University of Washington Press distinguishes between examination and desk copies. Examination and desk copies are provided to qualified instructors of appropriate courses at the discretion of the Press.

Desk Copy Policy

A desk copy is a book that has already been adopted for course use. If you have adopted one of our books for use in a course, please submit your request for a complimentary desk copy on your school letterhead. Please include all relevant course information, including expected enrollment, course title, when the course will be taught, and whether the book is a required text.

You may fax your request to: 1-206-685-3460 or 1-800-669-7993.

Or, you may mail it to:
