We are excited to invite you to a lively discussion led by the Association of Canadian University Presses (ACUP), Edinburgh University Press, Berghahn Books, and University of British Columbia.

Our panelists include:

  • Arielle Lomness, Collections Librarian, University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus
  • Vivian Berghahn, Managing Director, Berghahn Books
  • Nicola Ramsey, CEO, Edinburgh University Press

This session is also an opportunity to meet the university press communities in Canada and the U.K. as well as the particular challenges of smaller scholarly presses.

We hope you’ll be able to join us and share your experiences and perspectives.  Please share this invitation with colleagues who you think might be interested.
