Udayana University Press Holds Book Launch and Review in the context of Udayana University's 58th Anniversary at the Sudirman Campus Postgraduate Building, Tuesday (22/9/2020). This activity was attended directly by the Chancellor, BPU Director, Udayana University Press and resource persons, and was followed online through the Unud Webex application by other participants and invitees. In this book launch and review, the Chancellor launched nine books, while for the book review, there were four speakers, namely Prof. Dr. IB Wyasa Putra, SH., M.Hum, Dr. Mirsa Umiyati, SS., M.Hum, Prof. Helen Creese and Prof.Dr. I Nyoman Darma Putra, M.Litt.

Head of Udayana University Press Dr. Drs. Ida Bagus Jelantik S.P., M.Hum in his report conveyed that the current condition of University Press, there are still many things that need to be addressed, including governance, infrastructure and cooperation with distributors. The current pandemic condition is also an obstacle in the development carried out. In 2020, Udayana University Press has successfully published nine books, and this will be developed not just conventional books, but also build a more modern system and adapt to industry 4.0.

For this reason, it is necessary to take strategic steps in the form of adaptation and cooperation. As a first step, cooperation at the local and national levels has been carried out, and even cooperation has been carried out with international level publishers whose MoUs are currently being explored. Through this collaboration, it is hoped that the Udayana University Press catalog can circulate internationally, as well as at the national level efforts have been made to develop Udayana University Press. For that we need the support of university leaders for the development of Udayana University Press in the future.

The Rector of Udayana University Prof. A.A Raka Sudewi in his speech said that the nine books launched today were the results of the thinking of the Udayana University academic community, and at the same time a book review event was also held which is a means of public testing the results of the thoughts of scholars whose books are dissected today.

Judging from the number of books that were successfully published this year, of course it is still small compared to the number of academics at Udayana University, even though these nine books are expected to become 'le petit histoire', the struggle for the development of science and technology at Udayana University.

The Rector hopes that the jewels of thoughts that have been successfully poured in the form of this book will be useful for all of us and for Udayana University Press Publishers so that they can publish more books in the future.
