Desk and Examination Copy Requests
Many of our books can be used as primary texts for graduate and undergraduate courses. Textbooks are made available to course instructors for a 90-day evaluation period, during which they can determine the suitability of texts for their course(s). After ninety (90) days, we ask that instructors let us know if they will or will not be adopting the textbook for their course(s).
If you do plan to adopt and teach from the book, please supply the course name, number, and level, the expected enrollment, and the semesters/years the course is planned for. You may be interested in our Student Discount Pricing.
If you decide that the text is not appropriate for their course, you can either purchase the book at a 30% discount from the list price, or return it to SIAM using the return label included with the book. Please tell us why you decided not to adopt the book. This information will help us publish texts that better meet your needs.
If you are an instructor who is considering a SIAM text for classroom use, please fill out our Examination Copy Request Form. You will recieve a copy of the book to evaluate for ninety (90) days.
If you have already adopted a SIAM text for classroom use and need a copy of the text, please fill out our Desk Copy Request Form. You will be asked to either a) provide us with a link to your online syllabus showing the text as a required text, b) fax us a copy of your syllabus showing the text as a required text, or c) fax us a copy of your bookstore’s order confirmation for the adopted text.
Please be sure to click the "Submit" button after filling out the form, otherwise we will have no record of your request.
