Congratulations to Data Services Librarian Patti Condon

Posted May 3, 2016

UNH Research Data Services Librarian Patti Condon's dissertation, Digital Curation through the Lens of Disciplinarity: The Development of an Emerging Field, was highlighted by American Libraries Magazine this month. Hers was one of ten Notable Dissertations.

Condon explores the emergence of digital curation as a possible discipline by scoping literature, content analysis, and interviews. Five key themes emerged from the data analysis. First, the terminology of the field is fairly well known, but a specific language has not coalesced. Second, collaboration among individuals and across social networks has evolved—in part from the need to partner for sustainability of projects. Third, there is evidence of multiple discipline engagement in digital curation practices. Fourth, education and training are evolving. Programs are offered through some library and information science departments. And fifth, the theme of professional and scholarly focus refers to the body of accumulated knowledge and skills related to a discipline.

American Libraries said, "While the topics vary, these 10 dissertations can help inform practice in different types of libraries. And with that, we want to shine light on those scholars and the notable work they bring to the field." Congratulations to Patti for this contribution to the Library field.
