UK faculty and staff may not profit from the sale of self-authored textbooks sold to UK students enrolled in UK classes. It is up to the department to ensure that the use of self-authored books meets the guidance in the Provost Office’s policies and procedures on self-authored textbooks. Faculty should submit this form to department chairs if they plan to use a self-authored book in any class they teach. The form should be submitted for approval well in advance of the start of classes. This form does not need to be approved at the college level and should be kept on file in the department.
