HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - This is a news release from USM

Patricia Condon, a graduate of The University of Southern Mississippi's School of Library and Information Science, took first place in the 2014 Association for Library and Information Science Education's (ALISE) Jean Tague Sutcliffe Doctoral Student Research Poster Competition. The competition was established in memory of Jean Tague-Sutcliffe, professor and former dean of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Western Ontario.

A doctoral candidate in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College in Boston, Mass., Condon's current research focuses on the curation and stewardship of digital assets in archives and libraries and the significance of place and sense of place in archives, community collections, and cultural heritage. Her dissertation explores the educational landscape of digital curation knowledge, practices, and skills, and investigates whether the area of digital curation, broadly conceived, is emerging as an independent discipline.

At Southern Miss, Condon earned a dual master's in library and information science and anthropology. Through her graduate assistantship with the school, she worked with the university's McCain Library and Archives on the Mississippi Civil Rights Digitization Project, processing and digitizing collections while also serving as an instructor of undergraduate information literacy.

Condon is a doctoral fellow of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) - funded Building the Future of Archival Education and Research Initiative, and has more than 10 years of experience working in the information professions including positions in archives, academic libraries, and publication.
