E-Inspection Copies – a quick and easy way to find the right textbook for your course at the right time

Searching for a book for a niche seminar you’re teaching or updating the textbook for your survey course? Taylor & Francis publishes a vast range of textbooks and supplementary titles that are appropriate for anything from introductory courses to an advanced seminar. To receive an exam copy of a book that you are interested in considering for use in a course, click on the Request Inspection Copy link on that book's page to make your request. You will be asked to provide some basic information about yourself and the course you are teaching.

Depending on the textbook, the title you're interested in may be available in print, as an e-Inspection copy, or both. If you decide to adopt any of our titles you've reviewed in e-Inspection as the core text for your course, you may be eligible for a desk copy to support your teaching.

Available from VitalSource, our online e-Inspection copies are easy to access and simple to use.
