PDA Series: Decolonizing Subject Headings and Collections

Tuesday, December 8, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Presented by Paromita Biswas, UCLA; Ann Hallyburton, Western Carolina University

This presentation will address the importance of ethical cataloging in challenging multiple forms of bias in descriptor assignment and collection building. Control of such bias supports accurate, equitable, and inclusive collection access and increases findability of relevant resources. Presenters will cover how cataloging and reference/instruction librarians inform each other’s work to support the goal of critical, responsible librarianship.
