A Note About Library Cataloguing and Vocabulary

SLC Libraries acknowledge that there is much work to be done to Indigenize and decolonize library content and systems. The library collections contain both historical and current sources, and as such include historical language, vocabulary and terminology. A provincial project is currently underway to thoughtfully re-catalogue and revise system descriptions and metadata, including Library of Congress subject headings, related to Indigenous materials.
