Catalogers' Judgements: Ethical Cataloging and Artists from Underrepresented Groups

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Note: This session will be video-recorded and uploaded to the ARLIS/NA Learning Portal.

This panel will explore judgement calls made by catalogers that can affect access to material on or by artists from underrepresented groups and marginalized identities. Panelists will present local solutions, best practices, and broader thoughts on the most effective ways to highlight this material for the user while being respectful of the artists' personal and, in some cases, private information. Topics include representation of Native American artists in a Koha ILS and challenges surrounding kinship and other sensitive, non-publicly displayed information; zine creators and the use of pseudonyms as a form of protection when publishing on controversial issues; migration of digital collections on women artists and balancing the need for interoperability and discoverability with staff time; cataloging ephemera of Latin American social and political movements and questions of partisanship in subject analysis followed by a more general look at authority control and the idea that professional practices and cultural discourses are mutually interrelated; and a look at specific MARC elements and practices that can enhance access to diverse collections in any library.

Learning Objective:
  • This session will offer an overview of prescribed standards and their implications/pitfalls/possibilities when making ethical cataloging decisions.
