How to Get an Out-of-Print MIT Press Book
If the MIT Press decides not to reprint a book when it runs out of copies, the title is declared "out-of-print". There are literally no more copies in the warehouse to sell to customers. This doesn't mean that you can't find a copy elsewhere though. Here are some places to check for out-of-print MIT Press books:
- The "MIT Press Classics Series" offers a print-on-demand service for many out-of-print titles. This service offers high-quality reproductions printed and shipped within a few days. Search for the title in The MIT Press online catalog to see if it's available.
- The MIT Press Bookstore maintains an inventory of out-of-print MIT Press books as a service to our customers. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about availability.
- Try calling your local used book store. Many of them will be able to tell you if they have a copy in stock right away.
- Many used copies of out-of-print MIT Press books are available through online bookstores. We like to reccommend http://www.bookfinder.com because its search engine will check multiple stores simultaneously.
- If the MIT Library has a copy of the book in its collection, a photocopy of out-of-print MIT Press titles can be ordered from MIT Document Services.
Good luck in your search!
