Imprint of the University of Florida Press and the open access publishing arm of the Smathers Libraries.

Our primary focus is to preserve the stories that come out of the Libraries, partnerships across UF, and collaborative communities, all with a mission to make them easily accessible for all.

  • Seeks partners who share their dedication to collaboration, transparent editorial processes, and sustainable publication formats.
  • Supports works that amplify the impact of the Libraries’ collections, as well as community- or partner-driven scholarship and public humanities outputs.
  • Publishes books on wide-ranging topics related to Florida and the circum-Caribbean, open educational resources (textbooks), and open access journals that serve and are of potential significance to the UF research and teaching community.
