BIBFRAME Blab School for Metadata Mavens

Cast Vote 18-minute Presentation

Abstract
BIBFRAME 2.0 in Turtle syntax looks dismayingly like computer code to non-coding metadata staff. The syntax, however, is less fraught with recondite details than conventionalized MARC 21. Collectively verbalizing Turtle-serialized BIBFRAME has proven a successful means of allaying the terrors of this new linked data cataloging standard.

Decolonizing LCSH in the Southern Levant

Cast Vote 18-minute Presentation

Abstract
LCSH geographic terms for the Southern Levant (SL), specifically those about the occupied territories, are disingenuously politically anemic. Other national libraries and value vocabularies treat SL geopolitics differently. LoC must “play it safe” where its paymaster, U.S. Congress, is concerned. We conclude by examining decolonization strategies available to academic libraries.

Are their privacy policies pertaining to these questions easily discoverable, or not? Come discuss what the answers to these questions mean for our professional ethics.
