Small team, big job: A model for sustainable critical cataloging and reparative description for libraries and archives

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review

Abstract

Is your library considering a critical cataloging or reparative description project? Are you planning to replace outdated subject headings or other inaccurate terminology? Do you want to implement local changes in your library system? Are you part of a small team and feeling overwhelmed about where to start? Join us and learn how a Cataloger, Archivist, and Metadata Manager at an R2 institution 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.
