45th chat, November 2 2015: dismantling white, upper class, cisgender, & colonial LC classification
Moderated by @mishiebhat
- Rory Litwin’s interview with Barbara Tillett on Library Juice Press – Litwin interviewed Tillett on the process of getting the Library of Congress to update subject headings in 2006.
- Radical Cataloging: Essays at the Front – the first quarter of it is available on Google Books, and I recommend the preface and the introduction.
Q1. How does LCSH affect the work you do at your institution?
Q2. Is there a better alternative to the SACO process of LCSH review to ensure that change happens?
Q3. Should we be localizing efforts at our individual institutions to create a more inclusive SH system? Or is a nation-wide system the only way to go?
Q4. How can we draw non-catalogers into the fold to help create change?
* LCSH = Library of Congress Subject Headings
* SACO = Subject Authority Cooperative Program [for more information on the SACO process, see the first suggested reading]
