The 64-year-old Press publishes about 45 titles each year, along with 12 journals. Director Robert Mandel, said he wants to increase that number to 80 or so book titles and 20 journals by 2006. He said the move will help that by strengthening the relationship between the university and the Press.
The relocation cost an estimated $10,000.
