Library Launches Reparative Cataloging Project

The Middlebury Libraries recently announced the launch of its Reparative Cataloging Project which in their words

The Reparative Cataloging Project (RCP) is part of the Middlebury Libraries’ commitment to update racist or outdated catalog records and to amplify underrepresented voices.

This project seeks to address catalog records that are historically inaccurate, offensive, discriminatory, or harmful. It also seeks to make records for works by authors from historically marginalized populations more discoverable by providing greater description and subject access. The RCP began in Special Collections and has led to the updating of library catalog records throughout the Middlebury Libraries.
