Due to the impact of COVID-19, we want to provide an update on planned activity at University of Illinois Press (UIP) over the coming weeks.
As of Monday morning, our HR department directed UIP staff to work remotely until at least the end of March. We are not physically in the office, but the behind-the scenes publishing process continues.
As of today, the Chicago Distribution Center continues to ship our books from its warehouse. We will send an alert if that situation changes.
Many of the conferences we attend have been canceled and individual author events have been affected as well. We continue to update our online calendar, but it’s always recommended to call ahead.
Because of the canceled conferences, we’re currently offering a Virtual Book Fair on our website. Use Promo Code CONF40 to get 40% off all books.
We plan to operate as normally as possible through this turbulent time, including the fulfillment of exam copy requests and sending digital review copies.
We appreciate your dedication to University of Illinois Press and hope to be of continuous service to you in the months ahead.
University of Illinois Press staff
