Salem Press

Salem Press Salem Press publishes outstanding print & electronic reference designed for use at public, school and college libraries. Visit us on the web at: www.salempress.com

Salem Press, a division of EBSCO Publishing, was founded in 1949 by Frank N. Magill. What began as a one-book publishing philosophy grew to become the foundation for a growing list of reference works commonly known as Magill Books. Magill became publisher and editor-in-chief of Salem Press, which he continued to pursue actively until his death in 1997. Salem Press was first located on Fifth Avenue in New York City, directly across the street from the New York Public Library. Between 1952 and 1975, Salem Press had an agreement with publisher Harper & Row, and together they published eleven reference titles (Harper & Row in a trade reference edition, Salem Press simultaneously in a library edition). Today, Salem offers traditional print products, e-books, and online subscription databases designed for use at public, school, and college libraries. We continue in our effort to provide quality reference resources that respond to the needs of the library community. What began as a one-book publishing company more than fifty years ago has developed into an independent library reference book publisher known to librarians nationwide.

Mission: Salem Press publishes comprehensive, multivolume sets under its Salem Press imprint, and smaller, condensed titles under its Magill’s Choice imprint. Products include traditional print products, e-books, and online databases designed for use at public, school, and college and university libraries.
