UIP would appreciate an appropriate acknowledgment of the source.

If you would like to submit a request to reprint material copyrighted by the University of Illinois Press, you may do so by clicking on one of the links below.

Once submitted, your request will be sent to the Permissions Manager and processed in the order in which it was received. Provided your request is complete and your use is approved, a permission contract and invoice will be sent to you via postal service. You will also receive notification if your request is denied.
