Digital items can be misrepresented when the people cataloging them don’t have a background in the cultural contexts from which they originate. How are metadata creators developing methods to encourage the creation of metadata that represents diverse points of view? How does using sources of authority control such as LCSH contribute to misrepresentation of cultural heritage materials? This program provides a discussion venue for ideas to promote cultural competencies and inclusivity in the metadata process. Sponsored by ALCTS Metadata Interest Group. Co-Sponsored by Black Caucus of ALA, REFORMA, American Indian Library Association, and Chinese American Librarians Association.
