About meThe tradition of scholarly publishing at the Smithsonian dates back to the Institution’s origin. In keeping with James Smithson’s stipulation that his bequest to the United States be “for the increase and diffusion of knowledge,” Joseph Henry, the first Secretary of the Smithsonian (1846–1878), initiated in 1848 the Institution’s first publication, Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge. The tradition continues today with Smithsonian Institution Scholarly Press (SISP).
About my librarySISP has a marketing and distribution partnership with Random House. This allows us to keep many of the Smithsonian’s respected scholarly book titles in active circulation. New titles that feature the work of Smithsonian scholars in the sciences and humanities will also be developed under this partnership.
