"This Just In..."

The Axe Library, in conjunction with University Communications, has purchased the 2006 edition of the Associated Press Stylebook and Briefing on Public Law. This is the number one style and usage guide used by newspapers and news related magazines in the United States.

The Stylebook is available in both HTML and PDF formats and covers topics such as:

  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Abbreviations and Acronyms

... it also contains sections related to:

  • Sports, including score reporting and league standings
  • Briefing on American media law
  • Copyright

The AP Stylebook is available to anyone affiliated with PSU and we encourage those in the areas of public relations, journalism or communication to utilize this new reference source. University Webmasters may benefit from the Stylebook as well as from our new Oxford Reference sources. HTML versions are available through our “Databases by Title” page and on our “Annotated Title” page, which also contains a link to an Adobe PDF version.
