Get Started

How it Works

After clicking on the “Get Started” link above, you’ll be presented with a digital library of many of Broadview’s most popular titles. Selecting one of these titles will give you access to all of the available readings contained therein—or you can use the search function in the upper right corner to look for readings by author or title. Building your Custom Text is as simple as clicking the “Add Reading” button on the selections that you wish to include.  As you add readings to your Custom Course Text, you will see a running total of both price and page count. Throughout the process, your selections will be displayed in a table of contents on the right hand side of your screen.

Can’t find the book or reading that you’re looking for? Do you want only part of a given reading? Don’t worry – Broadview’s staff is happy to accommodate customization requests. With the exception of readings that are in-copyright to a rights holder other than Broadview Press, the majority of material published by Broadview is available for inclusion. If you have any questions or requests, or if you would rather we build the custom text for you from a list of readings, please contact our Custom Text Administrator (custom@broadviewpress.com), at any time, or make a special note on your Confirmation Form and the Custom Text Administrator will be in touch with you.

When you’ve finished making selections, you will have the opportunity to rearrange the order of the readings via drag and drop. You can then confirm your order by filling out our Confirmation Form. You’ll need your course details and estimated enrollment at this point, so please have that information ready.

After submitting the confirmation form, someone from Broadview Press will be in touch to discuss any further changes that you might like to make. We will provide you with a PDF copy of your course text at this time. Once you’ve had a chance to review and approve your electronic proof copy, an ISBN will be assigned (which you can use to place your order with the bookstore) and your Custom Course Text will be sent off for printing.  

If you have further questions about how to build a Broadview Custom Text, please visit our FAQ page, or contact our Custom Text Administrator (custom@broadviewpress.com).
