Anti-Racism in the Library Catalog

Presented as part of a webinar, Decolonizing the Catalog: Anti-Racist Description Practices from Authority Records to Discovery Layers. A panel of experts explored recent efforts to draw attention to and amend harmful language in library records related to the African American experience in the United States. In this presentation, Elizabeth Hobart discussed the inadequacy of current subject headings related to anti-racism and the difficulties that patrons face in locating anti-racism books in the library catalog. She drew from her recently published article in C&RL Antiracism in the Catalog: An Analysis of Records.
