Textbook Resource Center | Rowman & Littlefield

Rowman & Littlefield publishes high-quality, peer-reviewed supplemental and core textbooks in the Humanities and Social Sciences for upper-undergraduate and graduate students. Browse our texts here.

We offer digital examination copies of eligible books to ensure a quicker review process for professors. Find guidance on print books/physical copies in blue.

We’re now partnered with VitalSource to provide digital textbook access. Faculty can access examination copies via their VitalSource Bookshelf and students can rent their textbooks on a subscription basis. We've been sampling our latest textbooks to professors’ bookshelves, so there’s a good chance you’ll see our titles there already, even if you’ve just signed up (or sign up here). With an account, it’s as easy as searching for a book and clicking the orange “Request Copy” button. For more, read this guide to the VitalSource Sampling Portal. 

Digital examination copies are also available via ebooks.com. Go to a specific textbook page on our website and click on the eExam Copy button. It will take you directly to the ebooks.com portal.

I'd like to consider a physical copy for adoption:
Go to the individual book page on this website and click on the Exam Copy button. PLEASE READ: When considering a printed exam copy, be mindful that orders are sent via USPS Media Mail (Media Mail can take up to 3 business weeks to arrive once the order is placed). All orders are confirmed via an automated email. Please check your spam folder if you don't receive this after ordering. Please order only once. Email textbooks@rowman.com if you are unable to locate the confirmation of your order.
