University Readers is happy to request permission to reprint any material you request. However, it is true that some publishers are more difficult and more costly than others when it comes to granting permission. Based on our experience, we may be able to make publisher recommendations that will help your project go more smoothly with regards to time and cost.

At University Readers, we specialize in custom publishing for the academic market. Unlike copy shops, our services include professional management of copyright clearances, table of contents creation, book pagination, and digital editing and touch-ups at no additional cost to you or your students. To ensure that your ideal textbook or course pack becomes a reality, we also offer a number of high-quality custom solutions for your course materials.
We will always return original books or journals to you as soon as we are sure that high-quality reproductions have been made and stored in our system.
Reproduced originals (copied before submission) will be returned upon request. If no request for return is made, ALL photocopied originals are carefully archived in both digital and hard-copy formats for easy retrieval and future manipulation.
If you have a specific request regarding the return of your materials please indicate this in the "special requests" section of our online order form or by contacting us directly at 1.800.200.3908 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
