Faculty Desk Copies & Electronic Resources

Faculty should first reach out to the publisher directly to request textbook desk copies and instructor materials. If verification is required, please have the publisher contact Doris Jones by telephone at 310.568.5553 or via email at

By registering on the publisher's website, faculty will automatically receive an email notification when a new edition of the book is available. Please be aware the bookstore may not be able to order older editions; therefore, it is best to have a backup plan in the event this occurs.

Electronic resources can be secured from our Pepperdine library.

Faculty Textbook Orders Through Pepperdine Bookstore

 Faculty are encouraged to place student textbook orders through the Pepperdine Bookstore.  This allows students to order or rent books online with free shipping.  To select from a list of books that are available to rent, please visit Follett's home page.

The Follett Discover Adopt program allows faculty to submit their book orders directly to the bookstore, bypassing the department. To access: 

  1. Log into
  2. Under the Faculty tab, click on the Follet Discover link
  3. After logging into Follett Discover, select the course, section number, and add the titles. For additional details, visit Follet Discover instructions.  

Follett Discover offers multiple modules, however, "Adopt" is the only module that Pepperdine has implemented at this time.  Everything will remain the same for students.


If you have questions about your textbook, the Follett Bookstore Personnel - Danielle Nodine - Course Materials Market Manager,  or  are available for assistance or call (310) 568-5711
