An instructor may receive up to five complimentary desk or examination copies in a 12-month period.
Examination copies are for instructors who are considering ASCD books for course adoption. The examination copy of a particular book will also serve as a desk copy if the book is adopted for the course.
Free standard shipping of print examination copies is available only to U.S. and Canadian addresses; requestors must pay for the shipping costs to other addresses. If there is a rush need for a book, you may call 1-800-933-2723 to arrange to pay for expedited shipping rather than submitting an online request.
Free e-book examination copies are available for most titles (no shipping charges; faster delivery). Before requesting an examination copy in any format, we encourage you to view sample chapters at www.ascd.org/books or Google Books.
Desk copies are for instructors who have already adopted one or more ASCD books as required reading for a course.
Free e-book desk copies are available for most titles (no shipping charges; faster delivery). Please check our Online Store for e-book availability.
Higher education, book store, and distributors, please provide the information below and submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our staff process all examination and desk copy requests manually, so please allow a few days for confirmation that your request has been approved.
Instructors choosing the e-book format will receive an e-mail that provides a download link for the e-book.
