    Often, customers associate Gallaudet University Press and the Gallaudet University Bookstore. Gallaudet University Press offers only the books that we publish, all featured on our website. The University Bookstore carries some of our books, as well as Gallaudet University logo merchandise, etc. While we enjoy a good working relationship with the bookstore, we are not the same entity.
