The Johns Hopkins University Press Celebrates
A Landmark Anniversary
The first academic journal published by the first university press in the United States is among the artifacts on display as part of an exhibit to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Johns Hopkins University Press. The copy of The American Journal of Mathematics is part of the exhibit that runs through January 2004 in the Johns Hopkins Milton S. Eisenhower Library.
The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, also includes other books and journals published by the JHU Press, including examples of digital publishing and even a functional model of a human skeleton that the Press manufactured and "published" in 1961.
"This exhibit is another wonderful example of collaboration with the library," remarked Jim Jordan, director of the JHU Press. "We appreciate the library's attention to our 125th anniversary."
"We're pleased to help pay tribute to such a distinguished legacy of scholarly publishing," said Winston Tabb, dean of university libraries and director of the Sheridan Libraries.
Since its founding in 1878, the Johns Hopkins University Press has carried the name and mission of the University to every corner of the world. Today JHU Press is one of the world's largest university presses, publishing 58 scholarly journals and more than 200 new books each year. Through Project MUSE®, a collaboration with JHU's Milton S. Eisenhower Library, the Press is a leading online provider of scholarly journals, bringing more than 250 periodicals to the desktops of nine million students, scholars, and others worldwide.
