As the Wake Forest University campus charts its way forward during COVID-19 here are some specific updates for Special Collections & Archives (SCA). ZSR Library will stay on spring break hours through March 22, and during that time period SCA will be open by appointment only, 9-5 (Monday-Friday). Check our website for updates and the ZSR calendar for Library hours.

Please contact us with questions at and we will do our best to assist researchers. Keep in mind, there may be some slight delays in transferring collections from off-site or responding to requests. We will update you as things change in the next week, and as remote classes resume on March 23.

A number of SCA-related events have also unfortunately been cancelled, and will be rescheduled at a later date:

March 18:
The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies History Panel featuring founding faculty of the Women’s Studies department to discuss the creation and evolution of the program since the 1980s has been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date.

April 8:
Paul Bright’s presentation on his work [im] provvisorio accompanying his exhibit in Special Collections & Archives has been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date.

Through April, Books, Authors, and Readers in 18th Century England, an exhibit designed by students from Dr. Jessica Richard’s Fall 2019 Eighteenth-Century British Fiction class, will remain on display.
