Best of Core at ALA Annual Conference: Sustainable Reparative Description and You
Learn how a Cataloger, Archivist,
and Metadata Strategist at an academic library moved from theoretical
to practical implementation of a critical cataloging and reparative
description project to address biased and problematic language. The
group has successfully implemented local changes to multiple Library of
Congress subject headings, impacting thousands of bibliographic records.
Attendees will learn benefits and challenges of local record
remediation with limited resources, approaches to research, project
prioritization, decision making, establishing sustainable workflows, and
cross-departmental and community collaboration.
- Pursue administrative support for a critical cataloging and reparative description project;
- Plan and prioritize goals of a critical cataloging and reparative description project;
