Twenty-Second Annual Faculty Author Reception (2004 - 2005)

The Leonard H. Axe Library held its 22nd annual Faculty Author Reception on Thursday, November 10th, 2005, 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, as well as published creative works such as musical compositions, art exhibit catalogs, or audio recordings will be honored.

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

Concise Encyclopedia of Advertising
New York: Best Business Books/Haworth Reference Press, © 2005

As with many institutions, advertising has developed its own vocabulary. While some terms and concepts may overlap with other areas, many are used in a particular way and have specific meanings in advertising. The Concise Encyclopedia of Advertising is a comprehensive yet to-the-point compilation of terms and concepts used in the advertising industry. It provides brief, easy-to-understand definitions and explanations of common advertising terms and covers all major concepts used in the industry.

The Concise Encyclopedia of Advertising is unique in that it completely covers all terms and examines all aspects of advertising. This book will help bring you up-to-date with current advertising jargon. It is laid out in an easy-to-use alphabetical format, which allows you to easily access and understand the information. For further reference, it also includes a list of advertising experts who have recently written articles or textbooks on advertising.
