Elena Althaus

Elena manages the library’s web presence and administers its myriad systems including Summon, the library catalog, the integrated library system, ILLiad and Libguides. 


Web & Systems Management Librarian


Elena joined Ursinus in June 2015. She previously worked as a librarian at Cabrini College. When not fussing with web and systems quirks, Elena enjoys all forms of exploration through activities such as reading, learning, travel, and walking wherever possible. Remaining free time is often spent cooking, daydreaming, or tormenting the cat with twist ties.
