Did Libraries "Change the Subject"? What Happened, What Didn't, & What's Ahead
On November 12, 2021, the Library of Congress (LC) announced via a press release issued by the American Library Association that it would update the cataloging subject headings “Aliens” and “Illegal aliens” to “Noncitizens” and “Illegal immigration.” Three library workers, Baron, Fox, and Gross, organized focus groups in November-December 2021 in order to find out how library workers felt about the change, and in this session, we will report on the findings of the focus groups and the wider movement to drop the ‘I’ word in our library catalogs.
