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

If shipping or ordering delays are threatening to derail your syllabus, 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

Print Books

Broadview’s warehouse is open and ready to fill orders of print texts for course use and for individual sales.

It is best for instructors to place course orders for Broadview titles through their campus bookstores, the majority of which are able to ship directly to students’ home addresses.

We understand that some schools are encouraging professors to teach from ebooks during this academic year. The vast majority of Broadview books are available in both print and ebook form. Students can purchase eBooks from any of the eBook vendors listed below.

We recommend either Google Play or the ebook vendor that your university or college bookstore has partnered with. Google Play is recommended due to its ease of use, and because provides both original page layout (PDF) and flowing text formats (EPUB) in a single purchase. Both formats are available for the majority of titles, though there are a few exceptions.

The Broadview Press website

What if I wish to assign a text in electronic form but no ebook option is listed on the Broadview website? 

While the majority of our titles are available for sale as ebooks, some 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. We deeply regret the inconvenience that this may cause. We will, however, be happy to ship bound copies either to your bookstore or to students’ home addresses. We’re committed to ensuring that all Broadview books remain consistently available in one format or another for course use.

Examination and Desk Copies

We are able to provide instructors with electronic examination and desk copies immediately upon request. To request an electronic copy, please write to your Publisher’s Representative or to

If a print copy is urgently required for review or for teaching, please let us know and we’ll arrange to have one sent as soon as possible to your home address.

If you aren’t sure who your publisher’s representative is, please write to with your school name and state/province. Your message will be forwarded to the appropriate contact from there.
