Sixteenth Annual Faculty Author Reception (1998 - 1999)


Flyer for the 2001 Reception

The Leonard H. Axe Library held its 16th annual Faculty Author Reception on Tursday, October 28th, 1999, from 3:00 to 4:30 in the Library browsing area. The reception continued the Library's tradition of honoring University book authors and editors.

As a library, we wish to recognize works of PSU faculty published in paper or electronically. University members that have authored, co-authored, or edited books published since last year's Reception will be honored, as well as published creative works such as musical compositions, art exhibit catalogs, or audio recordings.

University authors of journal articles, book chapters, or conference proceedings are also honored with a display at the Reception.
