The Association of American University Presses (AAUP) is celebrating the third annual University Press Week from November 9 – 15, 2014. The focus this year is on the vital collaborative projects spearheaded by university and academic presses with research libraries, scholars, and other universities around the world.

At the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, the University of Illinois Press is collaborating with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research to host an informative conversation for faculty about publishing with an academic press on Tuesday, November 11th, 12 p.m. – 1 p.m., at 500 Swanlund Administration Building.

Daniel Nasset, acquisitions editor, and Michael Roux, marketing manager, will give brief presentations on their roles at the University of Illinois Press. The discussion will focus on the connection between acquisitions and marketing, and how understanding this relationship can assist authors in establishing and maintaining a good working relationship with an academic press. Craig Koslofsky (History; Germanic Languages & Literatures), External Grants Faculty Advisor – OVCR, and Maria Gillombardo, External Funding Coordinator – OVCR, will facilitate the session.

Faculty members interested in attending should please RSVP to Kelley Frazier: kdfrazie@illinois.edu or 217-333-6771.
