Individual Presentation A: The Critical Catalog: a design approach to metadata for diversity (Rachel Ivy Clarke & Sayward Schoonmaker)
While diversity is a core value of American librarianship, no systematic and scalable tools currently exist to promote diverse reading materials by and about marginalized populations. This presentation introduces a design research prototype ‚"The Critical Catalog‚", a library catalog that returns diverse reading materials. The presenters will discuss the prototype‚ structure, metadata, and its social implications for knowledge organization.

Individual Presentation B: Harm Reduction in Library Classification (Violet Fox)
Pernicious biases in subject headings and library classification schemes have been discussed at length, but how should our profession best address those biases? While resource description can never be neutral, using a harm reduction framework can help us identify potentially alienating terminology. Participants will learn how they can become active partners in democratizing classification to introduce more diverse perspectives.

Individual Presentation C: #RepresentationMatters: Social Media as a Tool for Promoting Diverse Collections and Improving Access (Jade Albury, Nicolette Brant, Renee Romero)
Do your collections and services reflect the diversity of your users? Are your collections and services accessible to diverse users? Is diversity and inclusion at all a  part of your social media strategy? After a brief introduction to their collections, see  how two different teams are utilizing social media to intentionally highlight the diverse aspects of their collections and reach out to marginalized groups while marketing their services.
