Contact Information - Digital

Web Orders

The University of Michigan Press Shopping Cart feature is operated primarily by Perseus Distribution (for print format) and Chicago Distribution Center (for Ebooks). UMP also links out to other e-vendors such as Amazon (for Kindle) and University Press Audio Books (for audio books), among others.

Having different operators for the ordering, processing, and fulfillment of print and Ebook editions means that orders must be placed separately.

In all cases, whether you are purchasing a print or an Ebook edition, you will leave the UMP website.

For all information regarding how to order online, visit our Shopping Cart page.
