Dear Professor,

Happy New Semester! Prospect Press is looking forward to a flurry of new textbooks and new editions of existing textbooks for 2024. We have also added another distributor to provide our materials within an online learning management system (LMS)—Perusall.


Prospect Press textbooks are now available on Perusall and at our standard eTextbook prices. Perusall is an LMS with many of the features you would expect regarding notetaking, quizzes, grading, integrating class material from disparate sources, and synchronizing with institutional LMSs like Blackboard and Canvas. It was created to increase student engagement with their readings and each other. You can choose to use these social engagement features or simply use Perusall as an integrated LMS.

To learn more about using Prospect Press books on Perusall,
