The University of Southern Mississippi Libraries staff welcomes its newest catalog librarian, <strong>Xiaojie Duan</strong>.

She began work in the bibliographic services department at Southern Miss in March of 2014. “This is my first tenure-track position, and it is related to cataloging and classification, an area I love the most and want to devote my career to. I catalogue purchased books, and later I will oversee the digital collection projects and other special collection cataloging programs,” Duan said.

“University Libraries at Southern Miss is proud to have Xiaojie Duan on board, starting her professional career as an academic librarian,” said Linda Ginn, a catalog librarian. “We feel certain she will become an outstanding cataloger and will contribute much to librarianship in Mississippi and beyond in coming years.”

Duan received her bachelor’s degree in Italian Language at the Sichuan International Studies University in China in 2011. In 2013, she completed her master’s degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM).

Her career in cataloging began in the Milwaukee Public Library during her last semester at UWM. There she cataloged maps for the humanities collections, including maps in Chinese, French, German and Spanish.

Before working in the University Libraries at Southern Miss, Duan worked for the Access and Management Department of the Main Library of The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), where she cataloged Chinese materials, which are in different formats and some of them can be dated back to 18th century.



MLA's mission is to provide professional leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.
