Due to the impact of COVID-19, the State of Illinois will be under a shelter-in-place order beginning Saturday, March 21, 2020.  Until the order is lifted, our distributor, the Chicago Distribution Center (CDC), will be unable to pack and ship books from its warehouse.  Therefore, print books ordered from our website will not be shipped until after CDC reopens.  

In the interim, we encourage you to order our print books from your local independent bookseller’s website or other online retailers.

Note: E-book purchases from our website will be immediately filled.

Thank you for your understanding and support of the University of Illinois Press.  We will alert you when CDC is able to resume operations.

Be well,

University of Illinois Press staff
