Abstract: Slides from a presentation given March 17, 2022 for the Southeast Collaborative Online Conference. Critical cataloging practices can help library personnel address inequities in bibliographic description while helping library users to identify accurate representation in library collections. This session will help attendees think critically about their own metadata work, and offer resources and guidance for incorporating critical cataloging practices and concepts into the workplace.
