Montezuma Publishing has been a recognized leader in the custom course reader market for over 35 years. We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving the undergraduate and graduate students of San Diego State University. In addition to SDSU, we work with dozens of other colleges and universities.

Our comprehensive copyright management services, coupled with our proven quality and dependability, provide colleges and students with an affordable, legal alternative to the traditional textbook.

Montezuma Publishing also supports graduate students at SDSU and Joint Universities with thesis and dissertation services. We provide SDSU’s official thesis and dissertation review, and also offer formatting and publishing to students.

We take great pride in the personal attention we give to faculty, students, and bookstores.

Digital Technology

In response to increased demand for custom digital learning materials, we've partnered with RedShelf, which provides our students and faculty with cutting-edge digital technology.

RedShelf can make anything, even scanned material, completely interactive. Students will enjoy a quality, portable learning experience with our custom course readers.

Printing in full color is expensive. Now, faculty can have an affordable, full color digital course reader that will enhance their students' learning experience.

Moving forward, our goals include:

  • Seamlessly integrating digital format into our existing publishing services
  • Promoting our role as the definitive source of custom publishing solutions

Our register is open between the hours of 8:00am - 3:45pm, Monday through Friday.
