Our Response to COVID-19Posted: Tuesday, April 07, 2020
NOTE: Updates will be posted to our dedicated COVID-19 page.
To all our authors, readers, and colleagues,
UBC Press is busy! We are here and very much looking forward to connecting with you, our authors and readers. You can reach out to us by email (you will find our staff directory here). And you can keep up with what is new with UBC Press on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and, of course, here on our website. We will also be updating this page regularly.
From our kitchen tables, couches, and home offices we continue to work to publish books by authors that inform, inspire, spur conversation and change: books that we need in the world.
And, speaking of needing books, our books are still shipping from our warehouse in Canada, UTP Distribution, to Canadian bookstores, libraries, and readers. If you are looking for a UBC Press book or two (or a title from one the wonderful publishers we distribute in Canada) to read between online workouts and bread-making, please support your local bookstore! Many are still taking orders for pick-up or delivery. If you do not have a local store, you can also order from us. We are shipping orders from our website to Canada, the US, and internationally, where possible. And almost all UBC Press books are also available as e-books, delivered to your inbox immediately.
And to support you in getting all the reading material you need, you will receive 20% off all print books and 30% off all e-books until we are back in the office. When ordering print books, use the discount code “CabinFever” at the checkout, and for e-books, “Housebound.” (Coupons expire May 31). Thank you for supporting us, too!
For our bookstore and library customers outside of Canada:
Our US distributor in Chicago, Chicago Distribution Centre, is now closed in compliance with the Illinois state mandate until April 14. They are taking title backorders and will ship as soon as possible after they reopen.
Customers in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa, China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong can order through Combined Academic Publishers.
Fall 2020 catalogue is on its way!
Our fall 2020 catalogue, packed with exciting new books, will be available in May. If you are on our mailing list and are not able to get to your office mail, please let us know, and we will email you a pdf catalogue. Bookstores, libraries, and individuals can also find our catalogue online on Catalist.
For course instructors:
At UBC Press we recognize that due to the COVID-19 pandemic your job has changed and many of you are teaching online while working remotely. We’d like you know that our books are available digitally for you to review and adopt for your classes. Also, our ebooks are readily available for your students to purchase from our website. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help make this transition easier.
Keep healthy, and keep reading!
