Individual Presentation A: Starting at the source: metadata and DEI (Jessica Janecki, Christina N. Manzella)
Two Duke Libraries technical services librarians explore ways to incorporate DEI initiatives into ongoing metadata work. The panel covers a case study of The Narrative of Sojourner Truth illustrating the importance of authority control, and biases and limitations in Library of Congress Classification representation of identity.

Individual Presentation B: Building Diversity and Inclusion into Cataloging and Metadata (Clara Burns, Sol Lopez)
Research on implicit bias in the Library of Congress catalog clarifies the urgent need for corrective metadata updates that accurately represent diverse communities seeking access to information. To address barriers to timely revision, this project seeks to identify focus points for optimal impact in order to develop possible strategies that could accelerate change and be scalable for most libraries to implement.

Individual Presentation C: Accessibility and Inclusion in the Design of Library Systems (Micah Altman)
We present an analysis focused on how the technical information systems and software used in libraries create barriers to inclusion and accessibility.  This analysis is informed by an IMLS-sponsored national forum, convened in April 2019, bringing together technologists, practitioners, and academicians.
