Liaisons: Your Link to the Library

Each academic department and many interdisciplinary programs have an assigned library liaison. Your liaison strives to make your experience using library services as easy as possible. For faculty, this means Buying Materials. Each liaison manages the materials budget for their assigned departments. E-mail any specific book or video requests to your liaison, and they’ll see... more

Volunteering at Wake Forest

I assembled a group of books from the ZSR Library collection about service and volunteering for different causes. There are a number of WFU News Service pieces about WFU students performing service-so I thought this exhibit would be timely. I printed two accounts of current students and their service projects and placed the accounts in... more

We received over 100 entries and 500+ words. We took the words that were submitted and created a word cloud from the most popular words that... more

A graduate of Wake Forest, who also attended the WFU Law School before turning to journalism, Cash is most well known for his Mind of the South. We have his papers, some of which form part of the Wilbur J. Cash digital collection. For more information, see our W. J. Cash post in the Special... more

Special Collections Visits Data Chambers

[See Audra’s post for video] Well, my first thought was, as I began traipsing the miles of tall, dim, heaped and variously deployed chambers that make up DataChambers conglomeration of spaces, “What a great place for the climactic shoot out in a seedy thriller.” Lots of places to hide; lots of twists and turns; strange... more
