About the Library

Dean of the Library

Lisa Roberts | 864.597.4310

Instruction Librarian & FYI Librarian

Tim Brown

When asked by students, Mr. Brown says that he has worked in Wofford's library for about as long as the "Dave Matthews Band" has been a household name. As a librarian, he enjoys wearing a variety of hats: assisting students, staff, and faculty with research questions; selecting information resources to add to the library's collection; and teaching. Each semester Mr. Brown audits a Wofford course and performs with the Wofford Singers. Outside of work, he writes essays, draws with ink, sails, canoes, fly-fishes, ties trout flies, rides other people’s horses, bird-watches, gardens, practices yoga, tap-dances, and plays the electric bass in his five-year-old niece's rock band, The Pinkos, which was named after her favorite color. | 864.597.4311
