How to Access Desk Copies in Blackboard

Desk copies are a valuable resource for instructors wishing to read the online textbook for themselves. In order to access them, first open your Blackboard course and navigate to any chapter of the online text.

You should be presented with the grading screen that you see below. Scroll down to the bottom and click the Sample Chapters link. This will open your instructor desk copy and allow you to look through the book without the need to enter an access key or deal with locked chapters.
