an ALCTS Virtual Preconference
How are metadata creators developing methods to encourage the creation of metadata that represents diverse points of view? How does using sources of authority control such as LCSH contribute to misrepresentation of cultural heritage materials? Are our digital libraries equitable? This virtual program provides a venue for sharing ideas to promote cultural competencies and inclusivity in the metadata process.
- Presentation 1: Digital Project as Community Outreach: A New Way of Approaching Metadata
- Presentation 2: Doing Justice to the Humanities: Increasing Inclusivity with More Specific Subject Description
- Presentation 1: Towards Counter-Cultural Competencies: Mutual Metadata Creation and the Zine Union Catalog Project
- Presentation 2: We Don’t Use Those Words Anymore: Describing Yesterday’s News Today
- Participants will be able to identify ways to increase cultural inclusiveness of their metadata, leading to enhanced description and better representation.
- Participants will be exposed to new frameworks that will enrich their practices for creating descriptive metadata
