The Z. Smith Reynolds Library understands that the need for good information does not stop when you leave college. In fact, sometimes it increases. That is why ZSR has provided library borrower cards to alumni free of charge for years. But we are always looking for ways we can assist our alumni who do not live close enough to take advantage of our print resources. We are now pleased to announce that we can provide access to three EBSCO databases (Academic Search Alumni Edition, Business Source Alumni Edition and Business Book Summaries) for use by WFU alumni from any computer anywhere in the world. For more information or to log in, visit the ZSR Alumni Portal.
Save the dates of April 4-5, 2014, for a weekend of intellectual engagement for alumni, co-sponsored by the Z. Smith Reynolds Library and the Alumni Office. Familiar faculty and campus leaders will discuss the theme of well-being from all sides, including; emotional, intellectual, physical, financial, occupational, environmental, spiritual and social. There will even be an opportunity for alumni to give their own lightning-round talks around these themes. If you are interested you can get on our mailing list by contacting Lauren Suffoletto, our ZSR Fellow!
Finally, ZSR is continuing its popular series of online courses, ZSRx, this spring. ZSRx is an effort to bring lifelong learning opportunities to the greater Wake Forest community. Offered by ZSR, these free online courses are designed to be informal ways to connect alumni, parents and families to new skills and ideas in an interactive online learning environment. The successful initial course, “The Cure for the Common Web,” was followed this fall by a course designed for Wake Forest parents: Deacon Development 101. Upcoming offerings include: Digital Publishing, Winter 2014 and Social Media, Spring 2014. Sign up to be updated about future offerings on our ZSRx page.
In these new programs and in all we do, ZSR strives to live up to its mission of helping our students (past and present), faculty and staff succeed.
