      Janet Lindenmuth

      Reference & Electronic Services Librarian, Research Liaison

      Over 25 years ago, Janet Lindenmuth began her journey at Widener University’s Delaware Law School.

      A graduate of Drexel, Lindenmuth found herself starting as a cataloger at the library, inputting information on books and historical documents. Since then, she has diligently worked her way to the title of reference and electronic services librarian, as well as research liaison.

      Lindenmuth is the first stop for any research or teaching related requests; her responsibilities at the Delaware Law Library are endless.

      And, she’s always up for a challenge. Lindenmuth teaches a first year research course, regularly posts informative and historical Delaware related pieces on the library’s blog, edits all the law school faculty publications, assists in retrieving legal cases or law review articles, is the research liaison to numerous faculty members, and is still available to answer whatever reference queries come her way.

      The most rewarding part of her job, Lindenmuth believes, is being able to work closely with others and helping people find answers to their questions.

      “I love puzzles and solving mysteries, so if someone needs help finding an obscure reference in a Delaware Law document, I’m happy to help,” she said.

      Her willingness to assist others and love for problem-solving are what earned Lindenmuth an Employee Appreciation Award in September 2016. This award, nominated by her students and peers, served to recognize Lindenmuth’s dedication not only to her passion, but also to anyone that needs her help.

      Though originally from Pennsylvania, Lindenmuth currently resides in Wilmington, Delaware. In her spare time, she enjoys going to the theater, seeing plays, and regularly volunteers at the Grand Opera House and the Playhouse in Wilmington.

      “It’s a lot of standing,” Lindenmuth jokes, “but it’s worth it to see the incredible shows.”
