About Us

The Academic Department of HarperCollins Publishers is devoted to providing the best in fiction and non-fiction titles and instructor resources for high school and college levels.

We provide exam copies to teachers considering a book for course use and desk copies for teachers who have confirmed a book for course use, both through our online form. We hope the resources you’ll find throughout our site, including teaching guides, will help you decide which books are right for you and your students. As always, if you have any questions, please email us at academic@harpercollins.com.

Resources for Educators During Remote Learning


Due to school, college, library, and bookstore closings, HarperCollins has put these policies in place to help the book community reach out to patrons and students.


For additional virtual resources, check out our free teaching guides, exclusive author interviews, and AP resources page.
