Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 1 March 28, 1944

N.Z.U. Press

N.Z.U. Press

The establishment of a N.Z.U. Press was discussed at the last meeting of the Senate. Previously the N.Z.U. Press Bureau has recommended that theses should be published, but it is hoped that the aims of a University Press would be much wider. Many overseas Universities have their own Press, but in New Zealand, although there is a blanket clause covering the establishment of a publications body in the University Statutes, no such Press exists. The objects of the Press would include the publication of textbooks, lecture notes, theses, periodicals, scientific works, and special material for research organisations.

It was resolved that the matter be referred to the Executive Committee of the Senate for full enquiry, and that a report be made to the Senate at the 1945 session; so we can only reiterate the support of the student body of these proposals, and hope they may see the light of day early in 1945.
