PTL Onboarding: Desk Copies

Books may be requested at your leisure. We recommend you request your desk copy as soon as possible. Please review desk copy and prepare for kick-off calls.  The kick-off call will provide opportunity to ask course content questions, including questions regarding texts and other assigned readings. 

A few things to keep in mind when requesting desk copies:

  • Each publisher has a specific method to request desk copies, please refer to the by-publisher instructions below. 
  • Please allow 3-4 weeks for each desk copy to arrive.
  • Some publishers will only provide one desk copy per section taught, if you lose your desk copy, you may have to purchase the next one.
  • Should your assigned course get canceled, or should you withdraw, the SSW will provide you with a shipping label to return the book to the school. We appreciate your cooperation in this process.  

Common Information Needed to Secure Desk Copies

  • Your Rutgers email address
  • Full course number, including section number
