Reimagine Descriptive Workflows: A new report from OCLC Research
The Reimagine Descriptive Workflows project convened a group of experts, practitioners, and community members to determine ways of improving descriptive practices, tools, infrastructure, and workflows in libraries and archives.
The newly published report Reimagine Descriptive Workflows: A Community-informed Agenda for Reparative and Inclusive Descriptive Practice synthesizes the findings from this convening, related research, and ongoing operational work in the field to help chart a path forward in this work. This report contextualizes the challenges facing the library and information field in inclusive and reparative metadata work and offers a framework of guidance that suggests actions and exercises that can help frame institutions' local priorities and areas for change.
