The Association of American University Presses

University-sponsored presses are almost as old as the very enterprise of higher education itself, as their origins can be traced back to the publication of a commentary on the Apostle's Creed at Oxford in 1478. The Association of American University Presses (AAUP) was formed in 1946, and its website offers information that is both specific to the enterprise of scholarly publications and to the general book-loving public. Perhaps most visitors will want to start at the site's "Books for Understanding" feature. Here they will find works published by member university presses that deal with contemporary themes, including civil liberties and terrorism. Another fine resource is the 2005 University Press Books Selected for Public and Secondary Schools Libraries online bibliography. Here visitors will find a list of high-quality titles (organized around the Dewey Decimal system) that will be of interest to readers and librarians. Finally, visitors can also visit the News Desk area to learn about the role university presses play in society and view a list of awards won by AAUP member publishers.
