 Meeting Information

The next meeting of the Technical Services Interest Group will take place on Friday, June 2nd, at 2:00 pm - register today to join us!

Topic:  Inclusive Cataloging

Even though we can’t change the content of the materials we catalog, but we can make sure our descriptions are inclusive and accurate, especially for works by and about members of marginalized groups. Come and share what approach your library is taking or has taken in making sure the descriptions of catalogued materials are inclusive, accurate, and accessible to your users.

Our special guest speaker will be FSU's Sunshine State Digital Network Coordinator Keila Zayas-Ruiz.
