The UC Reprints were created from digital scans of actual UC library books. As such they may contain artifacts of library use such as library stamps, scribbles, and margin notes as they exist in the original books, reflecting their unique use and provenance. In addition to library artifacts, the works may have additional errors that were either in the original, in the digital scans, or introduced as the scans were prepared for printing. These errors may include obscured, cropped or missing text, and/or other errors.

At this time, you cannot request books to be included in the UC reprints program.

We hope that you enjoy UC reprints and the unique reading experience they offer.

All revenue generated from the sales of UC Reprints service helps to support the work of the UC libraries.
