20240516T1000 20240516T1045 America/Chicago Creating DEIA Activities in Alma for the Cataloging Team at University of Tennessee Libraries At the University of Tennessee Libraries, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) projects were created for our catalogers based on their individual interests and expertise. This work also supports our catalogers’ job performance criteria on inclusion, diversity and engagement. This presentation will highlight individual catalogers’ DEIA projects to enhance access in our local Alma and WorldCat catalogs. Their projects range from enhancing catalog records for a local collection for Black and Latinx music composers, ensuring access to books receiving literary awards from National Associations of Librarians of Color (NALCo), adding DEI-related subject and genre terms from the Library of Congress vocabularies and other vocabularies, such as Homosaurus, to general books', comic books' and streaming videos’ catalog records; to adding and assessing accessibility metadata in videos' catalog records. We will conclude the presentation by linking our projects with the national and international DEIA-related efforts.
