Ateneo Press general sale extended till May 6

To accommodate more faculty members affected by the fires that gutted the UP Faculty Center and three UE buildings early this month, the Ateneo de Manila University Press is extending its general sale. Until May 6, all Ateneo Press titles are available at half price, and every affected faculty is entitled to one free book.

The general sale is part of the ongoing Sagip-Guro Campaign organized by a consortium of Philippine publishing houses. The Press also remains open for monetary donations. Proceeds will be placed in a DCB created especially for the cause and will be used to pay for the free books.

The discount does not apply at any other retail outlet. Selling hours are from 8AM to 5PM at the G/F Bellarmine Hall, Ateneo Press Bookshop (Tel. 426-6001, loc. 4613).

Consortium of Philippine publishing houses announces Sagip-Guro to help UP Diliman Faculty Center rebuilding

The University of the Philippines Press, Anvil Publishing Inc., the Ateneo de Manila University Press, and the De La Salle University Press are each offering special sales packages, to benefit the teachers whose offices were gutted in the fire that hit the UP Diliman Faculty Center last April 1, 2016.

Starting April 6 until November 29, the University of the Philippines Press will be giving a 75 percent discount to all its titles. It will also donate a set of its pertinent titles to each of the affected departments.

De La Salle University Press is also offering 75 percent discount to its titles.

Anvil Publishing is offering two rates: 80 percent to its titles from 2009 and older, and 20 percent off for titles from 2010 to the present.

For all the participating presses, purchases will be checked against a master list of the affected faculty members (numbering 267, from all the five academic departments of the College of Arts and Letters, and four departments in the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy of UP Diliman). Multiple purchases for any one title are not allowed, but there is no limit to the number of individual books that may be bought.

50 percent off for 50 golden years of the UP Press

March is the anniversary month of the UP Press, and every year, a month-long sale is exclusively held at the UP Press Bookstore in Diliman to celebrate the occasion.

This year, as part of its month-long anniversary sale and in honor of UP Press’s 50 years of existence, the UP Press treated everyone to a one-day-only, extra-special sale of 50% off on all UP Press titles. This was a first for the UP Press.

The staff worked tirelessly from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. without closing for lunch to cater to all the guests who filled the bookstore to overflowing. People came in earlier than 8 a.m., others left past 5 p.m., and some even traveled from as far as Baguio and Cagayan to take advantage of the special opportunity to get UP Press titles and more at half the price.

Thank you to everyone who came and to everyone who worked hard to make this possible!

Keep up to date with the latest news on UP Press golden anniversary events through this page: https://www.facebook.com/UniversityofthePhilippinesPress or via Twitter because the celebration does not end here. Cheers to ‪#‎UPPress50‬!
