New Canadian Distributor for UAlberta Press

All print titles published by the University of Alberta Press will be exclusively distributed in Canada by University of Toronto Press (UTP) Distribution as of January 1, 2017.

UAlberta Press staff thanks its previous distribution partner at Georgetown Terminal Warehouse (GTW) Canada for their excellent work and partnership over the past 14 years. GTW will accept returns of UAlberta Press titles until February 28, 2017.

UTP Distribution is accepting orders now for Spring 2017 titles and will accept returns from March 1, 2017.

Cathie Crooks, Associate Director of the University of Alberta Press, notes that “as UTP distributes many of Canada’s scholarly presses, there will be synergies from aligning ourselves with our peers.” Another key factor behind the change is due to booksellers’ desire for a more streamlined purchasing model. “Our sales team, Ampersand Inc., will continue to sell our list, and expects to see an increase in sales,” she commented.
