Ethical Cataloging: The "Do No Harm" Philosophy of Cataloging
September 16, 2021


In this session, we'll talk about the evolving view of cataloging and metadata work. Can we truly be "neutral" in cataloging and metadata work as so many of us have been taught? We'll unpack neutrality for cataloging digital resources, examine our foundational principles of neutrality in subject analysis, and then dive into some of the sticky issues related to names and subject terms, using examples from real life. We'll also explore how other communities of practices (Wikidata, dbPedia) handle names and how we are making changes for the future - how libraries are addressing outdated terms, how we can include information in our records to reflect accessible content, and how linked data can free us from worrying about updating data, allowing us to be more flexible in our practices. Audience: Technical services staff, systems staff, catalogers, or anyone interested in names/identities, controlled vocabularies/subject headings, ethics, history of cataloging/metadata foundations, and/or linked data
