In 1979, he was appointed state and local documents librarian and then patents and law librarian. Sulzer was appointed head of the general reference section in 1990. In 1998, he became the associate dean of Campus College Libraries and was later promoted to senior associate dean of undergraduate learning services. Sulzer served as president of the Pennsylvania Library Association and has held numerous leadership positions on ALA committees and divisions, including chair and assistant chair of the U.S. Public Printer’s Depository Library Council, the National Commission on Library and Information Science Committee on Government Information Policy, and as chair to the Government Documents Roundtable.

Within the libraries, Sulzer led a wide range of committees and groups, where his strength in consensus building saw the libraries successfully transition through significant technological change and administrative restructuring.
