This presentation was given at the Core Forum 2022 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
In early 2021, a group of librarians at two university libraries embarked on a journey to review and update harmful subject headings and other metadata in their catalog, digital library, and finding aids. This session will discuss the background of the project and where the librarians currently stand in the process of remediating these records, including their efforts to create student internships to address problematic language in archival finding aids as well as create a community user advisory group. Special attention will be given to creating organizational buy-in and overcoming unforeseen obstacles and impediments.
