Additional publications are targeted for translation into Spanish on an ongoing basis.
Publications may be ordered in quantities of up to 250 with exceptions made for information being disseminated to students. Orders may take three to six weeks for delivery. The staff distributes between 10,000 and 15,000 pieces of literature per month, and fills orders as quickly as possible.
