Celebrate University Press Week
This week we celebrate University Press Week, which highlights the contributions of university presses to culture, academia, and society. It was established in June of 1978 when U.S. President Jimmy Carter proclaimed “University Press Week” to mark the centennial of university press publishing in the United States “in recognition of the impact, both here and abroad, of American university presses on culture and scholarship.”
The University of Georgia Press is joining 36 other presses to provide a University Press Week blog tour highlighting the value of university presses and the contributions they make to scholarship and our society. To find the websites and publications of university presses in your area, see the membership list of the Association of American University Presses or this map of university presses.
