As of today, University of Michigan Press is distributed by the Chicago Distribution Center. We are very excited by the opportunities this new relationship will make possible, but of course in these early days there are likely to be some logistical challenges. And this morning when we reactivated the “Buy” buttons on our website, we ran headlong into some big obstacles. In short, because of some complications with our data transfer to the new system, it is not currently possible to order through the site. This will be corrected very soon, we promise; one of the known issues has already been addressed and will be fixed on the site June 2. We are very hopeful to have everything back up and running within the next few days.
TL;DR – We knew things would break, just didn’t know what. We’re working on it.
Thanks for your patience!
