Getting Help

So, I have a question for Special Collections & Archives, how do I get help?

By Email

The first, best place to start is, your go-to email for anything—reference questions, faculty instruction requests, donations, and more. Messages sent to this email go to multiple staff members, so we can make sure it is handled even if one of us is out of the office.

In Person

If you’re asked for directions to Special Collections & Archives and are wondering where to send students, faculty, or visitors, the answer is Room 625. ZSR Room 625 is the SCA Research Room (west side, Reynolds Wing), the only public service research desk for all visitors and researchers to SCA. Our typical research hours are Monday-Friday 10AM-4PM (see our calendar for alternate hours or closures). To schedule a time, please fill out this form, email, or call 336-758-6175.


Adjacent to the Research Room is our classroom, Room 624. This classroom is utilized by SCA during our open hours of 9-5, Monday-Friday, but it is available for booking by anyone in the WFU community for events after 5pm or on weekends. Requests to use the classroom are submitted via the EMS system and are reviewed and approved by SCA.

Staff Members

Each SCA staff member has an area in which they focus their attention, from processing collections to rehousing materials, from organizing outreach to curating exhibits, and more. To contact the team:

Please refer visitors with questions to our Research Room (625 ZSR) or We hope to see you soon!
