Presented by Juliet L. Hardesty
Using inclusive vocabularies, defined here as those vocabularies representative of and created by historically marginalized communities, is helpful for providing options when creating original description. Is it possible to also supply these vocabularies for use as a navigation aid into a system that only makes use of commonly used controlled vocabularies that are not as inclusive or representative, such as Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH)? This talk will explore progress in learning about the scope of available controlled vocabularies and classification schemes from marginalized communities and a proof-of-concept project to engage such a vocabulary as an information retrieval aid for search and discovery against a system using only LCSH for subjects (a typical library catalog).
Presentations are from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm EST in the Herman B Wells Library in Room E159 (Hazelbaker Hall in the Scholars' Commons).
