Course Description 

Guest speaker session via Zoom:
Tuesday, November 8, from 12:00 to 4:00 pm ET (recordings available)

Extend your EDI practices from building your collections to implementing equity-centered cataloging systems.

While the current, standard classification systems have their benefits, they also often create unnecessary confusion and barriers to equitable access to resources. During this course, you’ll conduct an equity audit of your cataloging system and learn practical strategies for how to ensure your collections are organized with all people in mind.

This process can be daunting, but you’re not alone! This course will provide guidance no matter the type of library you work in or the current cataloging system you use. You’ll have the opportunity to self-select into relevant speaker sessions and be paired in workshop groups with peers working in similar systems to ensure you receive individualized support, lasting community, and tangible takeaways.

Our transformational online courses have given thousands of librarians the tools and vision for meaningful change. The live session is on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 from approximately 12:00-4:00 pm ET (recorded for on-demand viewing). Don’t miss this opportunity!




When you sign up early, you’ll have immediate access to our Early Access On Demand Resources—a series of webinars from Library Journal and School Library Journal contributors along with rich, supporting materials in the form of readings, activities, and videos—to explore at your own pace.

Who should take this course

Any librarian who wants to address EDI in cataloging needs help strategizing and creating a plan to revamp your cataloging system, as well as anyone who would like ongoing support and feedback and they endeavor to implement a new system. 

Live session is also available on demand
