Established in 1949, the University of Notre Dame Press is the largest Catholic university press in the world, and a scholarly publisher of distinguished books in a number of academic disciplines. The Press publishes approximately fifty books annually and maintains a robust backlist in print. Located on the University of Notre Dame campus, the Press is a publishing partner with numerous university departments, programs, centers, and institutes. Through these collaborations, the Press extends the reach and reputation of the University while fulfilling its mission to advance intellectual exploration and knowledge. The Press’s publications are overseen by an editorial board comprised of scholars from a variety of university departments. New titles are approved by the board after a rigorous process of peer review.
The Notre Dame Press Collection is a collaboration with the University of Notre Dame Hesburgh Libraries to make UNDP backlist titles available through CurateND, the Libraries’ institutional repository. The Notre Dame Press Collection will allow members of the broader Notre Dame community to have free access to all the books available in the collection. The collection will continue to expand as more backlist titles are digitized and through the publication of new books. This collection demonstrates the mutual commitment of UNDP and the Hesburgh Libraries to disseminate innovative, influential, and enduring scholarship to the broadest possible audience.
