The University Press was established in 1945 to fulfil the need to acquire scarce textbooks during World War II. The University Press bought the rights to re-print books under the University emblem. In 1967, when the Press began the publication of Mosaic, an inter-disciplinary literary periodical, it became necessary for the Press to register as a printing service. Policies of the University Press were determined by an editorial committee appointed by the President and consisting of university staff and a representative of the Alumni Association. The Vice-President (Academic) was the Chairman and the Director served as Secretary.

The collection containing records of University Press Director G. W. Leckie, 1967 to 1971, consists of drafts of manuscripts, working files, correspondence, and financial records.
