Potomac Books has been acquired by the University of Nebraska Press, effective March 31, 2013. Potomac will continue to conduct business as usual in all respects. Ordering, warehousing, returns processing, and all other industry business and contracts will remain under the purview of Potomac Books’ publisher Sam Dorrance, who remains at Potomac’s Virginia offices, along with other staff members. All vendor agreements already in place with Potomac Books will be honored, and all fulfillment and warehousing will remain at Books International. EDI and other electronic ordering will not change.
“Potomac Books has an excellent reputation for producing fine books in fields that fit perfectly with University of Nebraska Press’s catalog,” said Donna Shear, director of University of Nebraska Press. “Sam Dorrance, publisher of Potomac Books, has guided the press to a position of strength and we are thrilled that he has agreed to continue in his current position as publisher of Potomac Books.”
