Texas Tech University Press Now Part of University Library
From The Daily Toreador:
Since its inception in 1971, the Texas Tech University Press has been an integral part of scholarly publication in West Texas. This summer, the press merged and became a part of Tech University Libraries.
“In a way we’ve already had a long partnership with the library in that the Southwest Collection is an endless source of inspiration for many of the books we publish,” Courtney Burkholder, managing director for the University Press, said.
The merger has had other benefits, as well, Burkholder said. The warehouse of the press, currently in Chicago, will be transferred to Tech.
“So, by taking advantage of (the libraries’) business staff, our business staff are now able to handle the warehouse, which should lead to greater revenues, cost savings,” Burkholder said.
