A practical approach to using Homosaurus to improve LGBTQ+ bibliographic description

This is the second part of a two-part program.

In this two-part program, Adrian Williams, the Cataloging & Metadata Librarian at the University of Kentucky Libraries and Homosaurus Editorial Board member, will discuss the bibliographic description of LGBTQ+ people and topics. They will address various methods to improve the description and discovery of LGBTQ+ topics, concentrating primarily on the Homosaurus controlled vocabulary.

The first program ALREADY HAPPENED and was of more general nature and that could be useful to subject librarians, faculty and students involved in LGBTQ+ related research. The second program is geared more towards catalogers and metadata specialists who want to use Homosaurus terms in subject analysis and bibliographic description.

Nov. 8 at 2pm. Register here:
