What does UBC Press do?
UBC Press is the publishing branch of the University of British Columbia. It was established in 1971 and is among the largest university presses in Canada. We publish more than forty new books annually and have a backlist of almost 700 titles. We do not publish any of the UBC newspapers available on campus.
Where can I buy UBC Press titles?
You can order UBC Press titles from our distributor, UTP Distribution. Click here for further information.

To ensure that all of the text will appear on your page, change your print properties from Portrait to Landscape.
