Sheridan loves our university presses

It’s University Press Week, and boy, does Sheridan love our university presses!  In fact, we’ve been providing print and publishing services to the university press community for over 200 years!

Did you know:

  • Sheridan’s New Hampshire location began in 1793 as part of Dartmouth College, printing books, newspapers, pamphlets, and college catalogs.  Today, Sheridan has four U.S. based production facilities that serve university presses around the world.
  • Cambridge University Press, the oldest university press in the world, can trace its roots back to 1534 when it was “granted Letters Patent, similar to a royal charter, by King Henry VIII to print ‘all manner of books’”.
  • With offices in 50 countries, Oxford University Press is the largest university press in the world.
