  3. Early each semester the staff member will send an e-mail to all instructors indicating textbook ordering deadlines and providing a link to the ordering site. They will also send periodic reminders to instructors who do not submit copies of book orders.

  4. DESK COPIES: The appropriate staff member will order desk copies. If you need desk copies, send an email to Jacklyn Heikes (Heikes.6@osu.edu) indicating the course number, author, title, publisher, edition, ISBN and the number of desk copies needed. Place this order no later that one month before the start of the semester. The staff member will send you an e-mail confirming they have ordered the desk copies.
