Information for Instructors

Print Books

Broadview’s warehouse is open and ready to fill orders of print texts for course use and for individual sales. All Broadview titles are kept in stock and available, except in very rare circumstances. If you have questions about stock availability, please feel welcome to contact your Publisher’s Representative or our customer service team.

It is best for instructors to place course orders for Broadview titles through their campus bookstores, the majority of which will be open this fall or are able to ship directly to students’ home addresses. Books can also be purchased directly from the Broadview Press website. We offer free shipping on orders over $50 for all Canadian provinces and within the contiguous United States. American customers can also support local bookstores by purchasing through bookshop.org.

For queries or course orders, please contact customerservice@broadviewpress.com or 1-705-482-5915. Customer service and the warehouse are open Monday-Thursday 8:30-5:00 Eastern Time, and 8:30-3:00 on Fridays.

Ebooks

The vast majority of Broadview books are available in both print and eBook form. Ebooks can be purchased from any of the vendors listed below.

Google Play Books
RedShelf
VitalSource
Campus eBookstore

We recommend either Google Play or whichever eBook vendor your university or college bookstore has partnered with. Google Play is recommended due to its ease of use, and because it provides both original page layout and flowing text format for most of our books. More information on our ebooks is available here.

While the majority of our titles are available for sale as eBooks, a few of them contain in-copyright materials which we do not have permission to sell in eBook form. If the product page on our website does not list an eBook as available for sale, we are unfortunately legally unable to offer it as an eBook on any platform.

Examination and Desk Copy Policy

We are able to provide instructors with electronic or print examination and desk copies upon request. We can send electronic copies over email within 1-2 business days. If you prefer a print copy, we can have it sent to either your institutional address or your home address.

To request a copy, please write to your Publisher’s Representative, fill in the “Request Exam Copy” form on the book’s product page, or fill in your book request details here.

If you aren’t sure who your Representative is, please write to reps@broadviewpress.com with your school name and state/province. Your message will be forwarded to the appropriate contact from there.

What if some of my students have not yet received their books on the first day of class?

The majority of Broadview’s titles are available in both print and eBook form. If shipping or ordering delays on print books are causing problems, we’ll do our best to keep you on track with temporary digital readings. Please contact your Broadview Representative with the title of the text you’re using, along with the page numbers of readings you plan to cover in the first week or two of class. If you aren’t sure who your Broadview Representative is, write to assistance@broadviewpress.com.

Information for Students

Where do I order my book?

The best place to purchase Broadview books is through your campus bookstore. Print and digital options are usually available, and many bookstores are able to ship to your home address if you are not studying on campus.

Students within Canada and the United States may also purchase print books directly from the Broadview website. We offer free shipping on orders over $50 to all Canadian provinces and within the contiguous United States; please contact Customer Service if you live elsewhere in Canada or the United States. If you order a book through our site, please place your order as far in advance of your course as possible, as it may take 10-12 business days for your book to arrive.  A tracking number will be sent to your email shortly after your purchase.

We do not recommend ordering Broadview titles from Amazon, as their stock information is frequently unreliable. American customers can support local bookstores by purchasing through bookshop.org.

Students studying from outside of Canada and the United States can purchase print copies of our texts through the Eurospan bookstore.

Ebooks can be purchased from any of the vendors listed below, and in many cases from your campus bookstore website.

Google Play Books
RedShelf
VitalSource
Campus eBookstore

We recommend either Google Play or whichever eBook vendor your university or college bookstore has partnered with. Google Play is recommended due to its ease of use, and because it provides both original page layout and flowing text formats for the majority of our books. More information on our ebooks is available here. If you are unable to find one of our titles on the above platforms, this is most likely because it is unavailable in eBook form; you will then need to purchase a print version.

What if I haven’t received my book by the first day of class?

If you’ve ordered a print book that hasn’t arrived by the first day of class, please let your instructor know. They can reach out to their Broadview representative to request two weeks of digital readings to keep you up to speed until your text arrives. We may request proof of purchase, so please hang on to your receipt!

What if I have trouble accessing my eBook?

Though problems with eBooks are rare, they do come up on occasion. In all such cases, your best option is to write to the customer service department of the eBook vendor from which you purchased the text—they’ll be able to solve technical issues with their own platforms. If the eBook vendor is unable to fix your problem, please write to assistance@broadviewpress.com.
