Treshani Perera, Music & Fine Arts Cataloger
University of Kentucky
Transforming the Catalog for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility 

"This keynote presentation will present the work being done at the University of Kentucky Libraries to address issues around problematic subject headings and identifying local solutions to implement in Ex Libris Alma and Primo. The keynote will address the need for identifying and addressing biases in systems and standards used in cataloging, and the role local workflows and advocacy groups play in improving diversity, equity, and inclusion in integrated library systems. Attendees will also learn about steps and strategies to take to conduct similar work at institutions using Ex Libris products, and come away with an understanding of projects and initiatives for addressing problematic subjects locally using tools and features available via Ex Libris products."
