Citation is something we all need help with from time to time. The ZSR Library wants to make citation easier for everyone. This fall, ZSR is offering a variety of workshops for faculty, staff, and students:

  • The New MLA Style Manual – Eighth Edition: Join us for a session where we review what’s new in the recently-released eighth edition of the MLA style manual. Faculty, staff, and students welcome. Two Sunday sessions: Register here!
  • Zotero: Introduction to Collecting, Managing, and Citing your Research Sources: This one-hour hands-on workshop will get you up and running with the popular and very powerful Zotero reference management software. Newcomers encouraged, all are welcome. 19 weekday and Sunday sessions through December: Register here!
  • The RIGHT way to CITE: This one-hour student-oriented workshop will take students through the basics of both MLA and APA citation formats. We will cover in-text citation and bibliography/works cited formats, as well as source management strategies. Designed for students at any stage of research to help make those citations easy! Six Sunday sessions through December: Register here!

Faculty are encouraged to consider offering extra credit for student attendance at any of the above. Vouchers will be provided upon request.

Faculty Senate adopts resolution opposing House Bill 2

The Faculty Senate of Wake Forest has recently voted to adopt the following resolution relating to House Bill 2 (HB2):

“The Faculty Senate of Wake Forest University opposes North Carolina House Bill 2, enacted on March 23, 2016, which is contrary to our University-wide commitment to diversity and inclusion. The law specifically prevents cities from legally protecting sexual and gender minorities from discrimination, while also preventing transgender people from accessing public restrooms safely. The Senate believes that the bill will negatively affect our current LGBTQ faculty, administrators, staff and students and their friends and family and may negatively affect recruitment of faculty, administrators, staff and students. In addition, as the law prohibits K-12 public schools and publicly-funded universities and colleges in North Carolina from having multi-stall, multi-sex bathrooms, it could jeopardize federal funding for the schools attended by many of our family members, friends and neighbors. Thus, we urge our local government officials to take an active stand against the law, and we urge the North Carolina General Assembly and the Governor to repeal House Bill 2.”

The Faculty Senate represents faculty from the entire University: the undergraduate College, the School of Business, the School of Law, the School of Medicine, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Divinity and the Z. Smith Reynolds Library.

The resolution is one of many efforts, including a similar resolution passed by faculty in the undergraduate College last month, to underscore inclusive values at Wake Forest.
