Workshop

Decolonizing Metadata: Enabling Sharing of Cultures through Respectful Representation (Monday, June 8, 13:30-17:00)

Indigenous and non-Indigenous individuals have long criticized the Eurocentric standards and practices used for organizing, classifying, and describing resources held in cultural heritage institutions such as libraries, archives, and museums. There is an urgent need for these institutions and those who work within them to address these structural biases through decolonizing approaches. Through a combination of presentations, small group discussion, and hands-on activities, this workshop will introduce participants to the notion of decolonization of metadata, provide opportunity to critically examine a variety of resource descriptions, and enable discussion of opportunities and challenges for decolonization processes in participants’ local contexts, leading to a plan for some concrete actions that can be taken after the workshop.

 

Sharon Farnel is Metadata Coordinator at the University of Alberta Library. In that role, she is leading the Library’s decolonizing description initiative, and a member of the Canadian Federation of Library Associations Indigenous Matters Committee Joint Working Group on Subject Headings and Classification. She is also an interdisciplinary PhD Candidate at the University of Alberta in the School of Library and Information Studies and Department of Educational Policy Studies. In her doctoral research, she is working with the Inuvialuit Cultural Centre in Inuvik to develop a community driven knowledge organization and resource description framework for the Inuvialuit Digital Library.
