Jean Wald

Music Specialist and Research Librarian

After a varied library career, including work at academic and corporate (engineering and law) libraries, Jean Wald came to Stetson University as music librarian in 1999 where she managed the university'™s only branch library, the Jenkins Music Library, until 2011. At that time the collection was integrated into the duPont-Ball Library, where she now serves both in technical services and public services. She has served several local churches as organist/choir director and performs on harpsichord and recorders in a local early music ensemble, Consort Cantabile.
