Decolonizing LCSH in the Southern Levant
Grace Barth, Steven Holloway
James Madison University, United States of America
LCSH geographic terms for the Southern Levant (SL), specifically those about the occupied territories, are disingenuously politically anemic. Other national libraries and value vocabularies treat SL geopolitics differently. LoC must “play it safe” where its paymaster, U.S. Congress, is concerned. We conclude by examining decolonization strategies available to academic libraries.
Making meaning in libraries and museums: Indigenous visual culture, subject access, and controlled vocabularies
Michele Jennings
Ohio University, University of British Columbia
This presentation examines subject access and metadata creation for Indigenous visual culture in libraries and museums in the US and Canada. In this context, the existing body of literature surrounding visual resource description is brought into conversation with calls for self-determination and collaboration with Indigenous communities and their visual culture.

Chicago Public Media
An outline of how and why our collection uses Wikipedia for controlled vocabularies. Wikipedia uses intuitive and inclusive language while providing practical solutions for a variety of needs. Wikipedia can benefit collections applying linked data, lone-arrangers working with non-archivists, organizations that require up-to-date terms to describe current events, and more.
