Starting summer 2022, we are committed to hosting an annual virtual symposium to connect our library and archives colleagues across the state of Oklahoma for a virtual symposium to discuss how metadata justice can be incorporated into our shared work of creating description and access for library and archival resources. Borrowing from our friends at OU, metadata justice "refers to the use of accurate and appropriate language in metadata systems like library catalogs."
Our intention with this event is to create a space for folks to share their ideas and to create a support network for those interested in this important work in our state's libraries and archives.
The University of Central Oklahoma recognizes the university's main campus is located on the traditional lands of the Caddo and Wichita people.
