How the program can help you
Through the Penguin Group (USA) College Faculty Information Service, you’ll receive advance notice of new and forthcoming books of interest to you. You can get answers regarding price and availability, tables of contents, and details of translations of particular titles. We’ll notify you of edition changes and steer you through our extensive inventory of backlist titles, which can be an especially invaluable aid in developing new courses. Because our program is not merely order-processing assistance but a personalized service designed to provide you with a supportive and noteworthy exchange of information, we welcome your opinions and your ideas about our titles. We value your suggestions because they help us acquire and publish the books that are most valuable to educators.
