Join us for a reception celebrating 100 years of publishing excellence with Illini Union Document Services, and Campus Mail at the Illini Union Art Gallery on Friday June, 1st from 1:30-3:30pm.
Established by the the Board of Trustees on June 2, 1918, the University of Illinois Press, Illini Union Document services and Campus Mail were originally one entity. Since then, the University of Illinois Press, Document Services, and Campus Mail have been valuable resources to the entire campus community at the University of Illinois. To acknowledge the longstanding impact they have each had on the campus and to recognize their evolution in printing and publishing services, Mayor Deborah Feinen and Mayor Diane Marlin will be officially declaring June 1st as ‘Printing Day’ in Champaign and Urbana at this event.
An exhibit will present and an engaging visual history of the University’s printing history, publishing services, and evolving print technology. The exhibit will continue for the month of June.
We hope you’ll join us for this centennial celebration!
