Faculty Textbook Order Form

Vital Source

We are pleased to tell you that the Bookstore has partnered with Vital Source and will now be able to process your course material requests electronically using a new interface called Verba Collect. The new process will streamline orders while providing you access to other options in selecting your course materials including eBooks, OER and Inclusive Access programs. Look for an email from uva@verbasoftware.com for a link to place your order that way. We will also take your order from the standard form below.

Desk Copies

To obtain desk copies, please use this link then visit the publisher of your adopted course materials and make a desk copy request.
Note: Publishers may provide desk copies for instructors, their TA’s & graders. Generally one free copy is given for every 25 books adopted for a course. Be sure to use your departmental address (no PO boxes) so that the books can be sent directly to your department or office. In the case that a publisher will not provide you with desk copies, we offer a 10% discount to Professors and TAs that purchase books from the UVa Bookstore.


In order to get the best quality books at the lowest prices for your class, we request that you place your textbook adoption by the following dates: May 1 for Summer and Fall term and November 15 for J-term and Spring.

Should you have any questions, please call 434-924-4253 or email textbook@virginia.edu
