From a UWP Press Release:

The University of Washington Press is pleased to offer a new digital, interactive seasonal announcement catalog. This new catalog is not a pdf and it does not require any additional software to download or use, but it does help us reduce our carbon footprint by using less paper to introduce our new lists of books. We are very excited to provide you with a new way to learn about our books, and we hope you will share your thoughts with us as we try to make the catalog as helpful as possible. In addition to serving the University of Washington’s green initiative by greatly reducing our paper output and our carbon footprint, the digital catalog replicates the experience of a traditional, print catalog while adding the benefits of working online:

  • Users can either view the catalog online or save it to their own computer for offline use, making it possible to have their own personal interactive catalog
  • Paste digital notes to any page
  • Create bookmarks
  • Send links of either a single page, select pages, or the whole catalog to colleagues, customers, and friends
  • Click on the title on any book page to link directly to our website, making it easier to order or contact Press staff
  • All sales representatives’ e-mail addresses are hyperlinked, making it easier for retail customers to place orders
