Jan Alexander

Liaison to the School of Engineering

As liaison to the School of Engineering, I offer individual and group instruction in how to use the Engineering resources available in the library or from the library's Web site. To arrange for instruction, call 610.499.4591. Please contact me if you would like to order any books related to Engineering.


To assist those doing Engineering research, I have created a guide to Selected Resources in Engineering, which lists both electronic and print resources in Engineering.


Widener University Archivist

The Widener University Archives exists to collect, preserve, and make available to researchers material relating to the history of Pennsylvania Military Academy, Pennsylvania Military College, Widener College, and Widener University. To learn more about the archives and the history of these institutions, visit the Archives, the PMC Museum, and the PhotoArchives Web Pages. Please contact me if you have any questions about the archives or would like to donate any materials.


Library Instruction

As part of our library instruction program, I teach faculty and students how to use library resources. I have co-authored a book Web Wisdom: How to Evaluate and Create Information Quality on the Web.
