Hi.
Cheri Schuler-Faust
09:20
WE see her notes, I'm not sure she wants to display it this way
Sherab Chen
11:01
Should the host notice this to her?
Sai Deng
12:04
I texted her

I am torn between not wanting to other people but how do we serve researchers who are looking for materials on black/African American female pilots?
Lisa Hatt
36:56
I frequently see it mentioned in these kind of workshops that "LC is not a national library" and I always wonder... is there any way we could make it so?
Kathryn Balek
38:00
Will these powerpoints be shared? Or a list of resources?
Patricia Sayre-McCoy
38:15
LC doesn't want to be the national library of the United States
Lisa Polec
38:36
Could the chat be shared as well?
Lisa Hatt
38:41
Is there a reasoning for that?
Jenny Levine (Core staff, she/hers)
38:46
The chat will be part of the recording, which will be posted publicly
Ayana Looney

Patricia Dragon

Not sure that if LC were the national library it would make making changes any easier. Congress does not have an exclusive claim to politics.
Annamarie Klose
40:32
I'll be sharing my slides with the list of resources.
Sascha Brock
40:54
thanks :-)
Edna Foxhall
41:33
Thanks!
Charlene Chou
51:58
Thanks to Violet to share the link of The "Change the Subject" documentary. Many iSchool students have viewed this film for discussions too. So much ongoing impact in our communities!
Rachel Lara
52:08
Hello. I’m a library student so I’m still learning about the information profession. If LC is not the national library, why is it used so often and held in so high esteem?
Jackeline Herrera
52:20
For Tris Shores: Do you know what kind of institutions have implemented this software so far? Any academic institutions?
Ross Betzer
53:00
I'm interested in how presenters have dealt with their own blind spots? I'm the sole professional librarian focused on cataloging at my institution, and I am a white man. I'm not sure how much it will advance EDI if I'm the one making all the decisions, even if I have the best intentions.
Cynthia Whitacre
53:32
We have National Library of Medicine
Emily Flynn
53:33
Also, "Alien" is a legal term still
Cynthia Whitacre
53:40
We have National Library of Education
Betsy Ferwerda
53:56
Does Congress have to approve new subject headings or changes?
Cynthia Whitacre
53:59
And the National Agricultural Library
Violet Fox
54:03
@Emily Flynn, LCSH is not a legal vocabulary.
Rachel Lara
54:03
Okay. Thank you so much for explaining!
Ayana Looney
54:51
Has ALA thought about starting a national library, to remove the Library as an Institution from Congress/politic control?
Susan Morris
54:56
LCSH may not be a legal vocabulary, but it is used by the Law Library of Congress.
Michele Wan
55:18
+1 to Violet's comment. Also, there were law librarians on the SAC committee that recommended that the "IA" heading be changed
Charlene Chou
56:16
President Biden will change "alien" into a new term, so this term will disappear from the law dictionary in the near future!
Annamarie Klose
57:02
We also need a diverse profession.
Jennifer Olson
57:18
yes!
Jenny Levine (Core staff, she/hers)

It's hard to start, knowing that we're going to mess up, but perfectionism is the enemy of improvement
Ayana Looney
59:09
Diverging the profession will require more entry-level Cataloging positions.
Jennifer Donner
59:14
I'm at the University of Tulsa where we have a large Tulsa Race Massacre collection and I am very happy that this terminology was finally added to LC.
Annamarie Klose
59:21
We need to involve communities to understand their needs.
Edna Foxhall
59:22
Does anyone know if it is noted on the LC website that it is not a national library?
Marie Morgan
59:24
I just checked because I thought I'd heard it but there's a news report that Biden seeks to replace 'alien' with less 'dehumanizing term' in immigration laws, so there might be hope yet
Kathleen McElhinney
01:00:18
In Primo, Cal State Univ talked about how how they used norm rules to change the display without changing the records
Mary Moulton
01:00:21
Thank you for mentioning LOC. I work for a US National library and Libarry of Congress is considered a national library!
Susan Morris
01:00:30
He didn't donate, he sold them when he needed money
Annamarie Klose
01:00:39
Yes, LC started with Jefferson's library.
Charlene Chou
01:00:40
Thanks to Jennifer for your feedback on the "Tulsa Race Massacre collection."
Rachel Lara
01:01:05
Wow! It’s used all over the world and LC is NOT the national library?! That’s crazy to me.
Ross Betzer
01:01:36
Thank you Annamarie, Elliot, and Bela for your responses to my question!
Annamarie Klose
01:01:43
Rather than local changes, there is a need to come together as a community to address many of these issues.
Annamarie Klose
01:01:54
It's especially a concern with Linked Data.
Rose Krause
01:01:56
Great session!

If only some of our members of Congress would actually read the books in their library. :-)
Cheri Schuler-Faust
01:02:06
very interesting
Erica Lu
01:02:07

Erin Rutherford

Yes, organizing around change is necessary.
