Can you provide an index for my custom reader?
Yes we can offer this service, though it may influence the price of the finished product (£1-2 extra per reader) and the timing as indexing needs manual intervention for it to be done well. Dynamic indexing has arrived though is not yet available for all our textbooks. Please feel free to ask about the options for your project.
Can my printed reader be published in full-colour?
Yes, we do offer this service and have now published full-colour custom readers. However colour printing has a significant impact on the price, and only becomes reasonable at around 1000 copies - this does not have to be for one year sale, but could cover 2 or 3 years worth of use. Please feel free to ask about the options for your project.
Do I have a choice of covers for my printed reader?
Yes, your custom reader will also receive a custom cover which you can select at the appropriate stage of the project.
Can I publish material specifically for custom purposes (chapters for example) rather than a whole textbook?
Material to complement one of our existing textbooks

This could be of interest as a custom item.
The material would have to be delivered electronically (word file or pdf)
You would receive a contract for the material to be published.

For further information please contact warren.eels@mheducation.com
Can my McGraw-Hill custom product include material from other publishers?
This may be possible under the following conditions:

The lecturer must clear permissions with the other publisher, stating that it is for inclusion in a McGraw-Hill custom publication
Permission fees would need to be paid by the University/Department
The custom product must be a minimum of 50% McGraw-Hill content
What can I choose from?
All McGraw-Hill textbooks published in the US and Europe in all fields. On Create are all the pages from books published in the last five years, and selected titles from earlier
All Open University Press titles from the last four years
Business cases from Harvard, INSEAD, Darden, Thunderbird, Ivey
Professional business books
Taking Sides - debate materials

Teaching resources are available for teaching staff, eg. test banks, videos, PowerPoints, and much more

You can mix and match whatever you choose from all of the options above. If there is a McGraw-Hill title that you are considering that is not on Primis, it can be added, so please let us know.
How do I get started?
Please contact your McGraw-Hill representative. They will be happy to help you throughout the project.
How does the process of selecting material work?
Together with your representative you decide on the best way to proceed. This could be with you telling the rep exactly what you require, and them handling matters from then on, or working together on Primis to select the material online. Either way, the selected material will be sent to you to review before a final decision is made to adopt the item.
What delivery methods are available for the material I've selected?
Again, the best method of delivery can be decided on together with the rep. Options are as follows:

printed reader
printed reader shrink-wrapped with another textbook
CD shrink-wrapped with another textbook
teacher's notes shrink-wrapped with textbook and/or printed reader
pdf integrated in CMS
standalone CD

Depending on the selected method, the material will either be supplied via the usual bookstore, or direct to the department.
What does the selection and delivery process for custom publishing involve?
Please view this file to see an overview of the process.
Can I add my own material to a McGraw-Hill custom published item?
Yes – this option is available to you within Create and many file formats are supported. Please note that your own material does not necessarily have to be in English.
How much will my selection cost?
Given the nature of custom publishing, every project is individually costed. Please let us know, and we will be happy to cost whatever you have in mind. Bear in mind too that there are a variety of options for delivery of the same material which may also vary the cost. We aim to get a quote to you within two working days.
How long will it all take?
Once the material has been selected and you are happy to adopt that material, and the means of delivery has been confirmed, then the following times apply:

printed reader - up to 8 weeks
eBook - 1 week
material on CD - 2-4 weeks
pdf - 1 week
Am I obliged to use the material for more than one year/course?
Adopting a McGraw-Hill custom product for your course is the same as with any regular textbook adoption - there is no obligation to use it longer than you feel is appropriate.
What will my printed reader look like?
Essential like the textbook it was selected from, in two-colour. The cover can be made to specifically fit your course, with the relevant details included.
Who can I contact if I have questions?
Please contact your McGraw-Hill representative - they are your consultant throughout the whole process.
