It's now easier than ever to create your perfect learning solution!

Custom Cover Know Your World      

Draw from our extensive library of texts and collections and if desired, include your own material, to create the perfect textbook that’s tailor-made for your course.

Custom publishing allows you to pick and choose content from one or more Cengage titles and combine it into a definitive course text, to create a complete and efficient resource. There are a variety of ways to create a bespoke publication. You can:

  • Take out the extra material you do not cover in class.
  • Replace chapters with coverage that better matches your approach. Our Cengage representatives are always on hand to help map content to your course.
  • Supplement the text with additional readings, cases, or exercises. They can be used to create an affordable course supplement or integrated into your textbook.
  • Include your own course material. Help your students keep reference materials all in one place by binding them with your text. Popular examples include course syllabi, maps, lecturer notes, PowerPoint slides and sample exams.
  • Choose to create a print book, eBook or both. Having these options available gives you the freedom to create a product in a style and format that most effectively communicates with your students. If you choose the print option, be assured that all our custom textbooks are professionally produced and bound, exactly the same as a normal text.
  • Design your own cover and add your university branding and course information for a truly personalized textbook.

Benefits for you:

  • Tailor-made for your course. You create your own course specific material collated into one single textbook, branded for your course and University. Tailor made for your course, and your teaching style.
  • Cengage take on all costs and responsibility for printing and sell through. We will print for 100% of student enrollment on the course. We do not expect every book or eBook to sell and all we ask is that you actively recommend that students purchase the textbook or eBook for their studies.
  • Saves you time. Including your own lecture notes, PowerPoint slides, reading lists, workshop or tutorial materials etc means that you don’t need to spend time ensuring your students get all this information separately.
  • Save your department money. By including your own notes, it will also have the additional benefit of saving your department from printing out and distributing them.

Benefits for your students:

  • Your students get value for money as they only need to purchase and read the material required for the course – no unnecessary additional information.
  • Convenience. There’s no need for your students to locate and purchase several different resources for the course, it’s all in one place.
  • Easier to find what they’re looking for. You can choose the content of the custom text to ensure that your students have exactly the resources they need to succeed in one book.
  • Resources that works best for them. You can choose to include the resources which have been most successful and engaging for your students.
  • Your students are more prepared for class. You determine the content for the course, providing students with exactly what they need to succeed.
