The Cataloging Lab: encouraging collaboration for a more effective and inclusive LCSH proposal process
Violet Fox

Abstract: Applying Library of Congress Subject Headings is a large part of the subject analysis that catalogers perform every day, but most catalogers are unaware of the process of how headings are revised and added. The Cataloging Lab is a new wiki where anyone who is interested in making LCSH more responsive to users' needs can work together with others to create proposals to add or change headings. By empowering all library workers to understand and contribute to the process of changing LCSH, we can emphasize the necessity for thoughtful collaboration to provide high quality, user-centered metadata.

Presenter Biography: Violet Fox is a cataloging and metadata expert in central Minnesota. She completed her MLIS at the University of Washington iSchool in 2013. Her research interests include the intricacies of zine cataloging and the ethical implications of classification.
