Please join us for the ALCTS Cataloging & Metadata Management Section (CaMMS) Forum at ALA Midwinter 2018 in Denver, Colorado.
Cooperatively conscientious cataloging
CaMMS Forum, Midwinter 2018
Sunday, 11 February 2018
Colorado Convention Center, Rm 203/205
Metadata creators are at the forefront of advocating for social justice in our work, because we recognize the harmful effects that inappropriate or missing metadata can have on marginalized groups in our society. A code of ethics or best practices guide would provide guidance in our day-to-day work as well as reinforce the importance of the work we do to make information available. The creation of such a document will be a collaborative and cooperative project, which is why we need your participation!
The small group discussions at this session will be added to feedback from prior CaMMS events on ethics and will inform the development of best practices and/or other documents that reflect the values of our profession.
