The NEHU Publication Unit was created with a view to promoting and undertaking publications in various areas and for the different target groups. It has mainly concerned itself with the publication of the University and some undergraduate textbooks, general books, supplementary reading materials, reference books, and research works particularly those relating to the North-East, Endowment lectures delivered in the university and official publications like the University Calendar, the Annual Report, the Annual Accounts, NEHU News, and The NEHU Journal. As in the past the important printing job is the University’s Annual Report.
Apart from these, the Unit is also functioning as the official printer of the University. With the shifting of the NEHU Publication Unit to the permanent campus in August 2012, the Unit is expected to serve the university in all matters of printing. It is expected that in the near future the Unit will be equipped with modern machineries to serve the University and undertake public printing jobs from outside the campus.
This is largely a self-financing Unit and has developed out of a small investment made at the time of its establishment. The press for which there is a separate Press Revolving Fund is also largely self-financing. The Unit is revamping its different units based on elaborately prepared blueprints and has been undertaking almost all printing jobs emanating from the various departments and centres of the University. On the distribution front, the Unit has tied up with all the city book stalls in Shillong and some in Guwahati.
