Book authors

A display cabinet in the Library entrance showcases book authors. An author photograph, and copy of their work is on display several weeks before and after the reception. The authors are present during the reception, and their items are relocated to the Library browsing area.

Each author has a representative web page, showing all of the works completed while at PSU. Links to other related sites such as WorldCat and WorldCat Identities give you an insight on all works authored.

Separate pages listing authors by year and an alphabetical list of authors are also available.

Display of other published works

The Library also recognizes authors of other published works such as journal articles, chapters in books, published conference papers, poetry, short stories, art exhibit catalogs, software programs, musical compositions or recordings, patents, etc. An annual display is created in the Library Browsing Area to feature these authors. Authors submit a copy of the first page of their publications for the display.

Each year, the Library produces a bibliography of all citations submitted. The citations are also used on any applicable Research Guides in each field.
