Jane Wildermuth


Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that Jane Wildermuth, head of Special Collections and Archives in the Wright State University Libraries, has agreed to serve as interim university librarian. Ms. Wildermuth will oversee the University Libraries’ daily operations until a permanent university librarian is appointed.

She replaces Karen Wilhoit, who retired at the end of February.

Ms. Wildermuth has worked for the Wright State University Libraries for 25 years. In 2020, she was named the head of Special Collections and Archives, overseeing Wright State’s world-class historical collections, digitization projects for the Libraries and Wright State, and CORE Scholar, the university’s institutional repository.

Ms. Wildermuth joined the University Libraries in 1999 as an archivist in Special Collections and Archives. In 2006, she created and served as the head of Digital Initiatives and Repository Services.

Please join me in welcoming Jane Wildermuth to her new role at Wright State University.

Best, Amy Thompson, Ph.D.
Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
