Evaluation Copies Feature

We are excited to announce the launch of our latest platform feature - Evaluation Copies!

We understand how important it is for you to evaluate the suitability of books for your booklisting, and this feature aims to make that task easier and more efficient.

View the feature video below.

Key Benefits of the Evaluation copies feature:

  1. Seamless access to page proofs: You can now access page proofs of the latest editions well in advance. This allows you to preview the content, layout, and structure of the books, helping you make informed decisions for your school's curriculum.

  2. Australian Curriculum alignment: We've worked diligently to ensure that new editions aligned with the Australian Curriculum are available as soon as they publish. By utilising the Evaluation Copy feature, you can evaluate these new editions and assess their suitability for your student’s educational journey.

  3. User-friendly interface: The Evaluation Copy feature is integrated into the platform. Simply select from our curated booklists and easily view titles by dragging and dropping the titles you wish to view.

Accessing the Evaluation Copies feature can be done through your Box of Books account. Once logged in, you'll find a dedicated section where you can browse and click ‘Get This Book’ on the titles you wish to evaluate.

Then start reading and reviewing!
