Meet the Library Staff: Scott DeMaris

F. Scott DeMaris, Adjunct Reference Librarian, can be found at the Reference Desk every other Saturday during the fall and spring semesters. During the week Scott is a Senior Research Librarian at the law firm of Reed Smith LLP in Philadelphia. He grew up in Haddonfield and Cherry Hill, NJ, working in restaurants in Ocean City during the summers. After graduating from Western Maryland College, now McDaniel College, in Westminster, MD, he worked at Blackwell’s Book Services before attending Drexel to obtain a master’s degree in library science. Scott has always been interested in books and in music, specifically playing the guitar. He has played with many bands, including a month’s gig on the Greek island of Ios. His first job as a reference librarian was with White and Williams LLP. He has also been an electronic services librarian with Blank Rome LLP. Scott teaches a section of Widener’s Advanced Legal Research course about the real world of law firms. As a firm librarian, his services to attorneys are primarily through electronic means, so he enjoys the interaction with students and other users of our library when he is at our Reference Desk. Scott and his wife Teresa live in Voorhees, NJ, but they love to travel. He is fluent in German, she is fluent in Spanish, so they love to eat in German and Spanish restaurants. Scott continues to play and sing with various groups, specializing in the dobro resonator guitar, an instrument developed in Hungary in the 1920s.
