mastermind of the Bryant Park
renovation in NYC and lifestyle
improvements in many other
U.S. cities, we now feature bistro
-style chairs and tables sprinkled
across the south side of the
Quad, along with ‘game carts’
and ping-pong tables. As the
weather warms, join the many
members of our community who
have already found their way to
these low-key sources of stress
reduction and interpersonal
connection. We look forward to
continuing efforts to enhance
our collective well-being in
months ahead.

Dear Colleagues,
Fond new year’s/new semester’s
greetings to my Wake Forest
staff and faculty colleagues; I’m
hoping this finds you refreshed
as we sail into the Spring 2013
term. I remain immensely
grateful for the advice and
suggestions I’ve received during
these initial six months—please
keep your wise counsel coming.
My thanks also to the many of
you who conveyed such warm
wishes on the birth of our first
child, Graylyn Sage Kersh, on the
auspicious date of 12/12/12
(note the Wake/Winston theme
in her first name!).
Our university-wide well-being
initiative continues to take
shape, as discussed at Campus
Connections a few weeks back.
Much appreciation to our
planning committee of staff,
faculty, and students, hard at
work scoping existing WFU
wellness efforts and devising
next steps. Associate Provost
Jennifer Collins, along with
provost’s office Fellow Sam
Perrotta and special-projects
guru Meghan Haenn, have
launched ‘listening sessions’
across campus to provide broad
input. (If you’d like to host or
join such a session, contact any
of that trio.)
A pair of exciting early innova-
tions to describe, under the well-
being banner. Our inaugural
group of WFU Faculty Fellows
was recently announced: these
19 faculty members are
developing programs and
informal gatherings for first-year
students across our six freshman
residential halls, starting this fall.
Research affirms that connecting
with faculty outside the class-
room can significantly enhance
students’ reported quality of life
on campus. Another engaging
project arrived on the Quad
before Thanksgiving. With
guidance from Dan Biederman,
Message from the Provost…..

ZSR Library Joins HathiTrust
ZSR Library has joined HathiTrust as a sustaining partner. HathiTrust began in 2008 as a collaboration among thirteen universities to archive
and to share their digitized collections. Today, it is an international community of over 60 research libraries committed to long-term curation and
availability of the cultural record. Partners are building a comprehensive archive of published literature from around the world and collaborative
strategies for managing and developing their digital and print holdings. Currently, the HathiTrust Digital Library contains 10,600,000 mono-
graphs and serials, including both copyrighted and public-domain materials digitized by Google, the Internet Archive, Microsoft, and in-house
initiatives.
Sustaining partnership will benefit the Wake Forest community in a variety of ways:
Ability to view and download public-domain materials and materials for which HathiTrust has received permissions;
Specialized access to public-domain and in-copyright materials for users who have print disabilities;
Other lawful uses of in-copyright materials, such as those afforded by US copyright law Section 108 (print replacement copies, digital
access to applicable works) and fair use of in-copyright materials; and
Ability to create virtual collections of volumes held in the repository.
ZSR Library is proud to join a community of institutions supporting the teaching and learning activities of faculty and students at their home
institutions and the scholarly needs of the broader public.
