Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the Z. Smith Reynolds Library!

I hope you will find personal satisfaction and opportunities for growth and development as a member of this dedicated team and as an employee of Wake Forest University. Those who work in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library know that what they do is important to the university and to the present and future generations of faculty, students and staff who live and work here.

Our simple mission is to help our faculty, students and staff succeed. We do this by providing unparalleled service in managing, delivering and teaching the use of scholarly content and information technology.

The world of information is characterized by rapid change, and as information workers we are continuously learning and adapting to new technologies. This lends a sense of excitement to the challenge of library work.

I am very proud to be associated with the library family you have just joined and look forward to your contributions to our success.


Lynn Sutton, Ph.D.
