I hope you were able to see last night’s IU Cinema Virtual Screening of the Change the Subject, featuring a Q&A with film producer Óscar Rubén Cornejo Cásares. The film is available through IUCAT to those affiliated with IU.
The IU Libraries Diversity Committee is hosting a Change the Subject panel discussion featuring several experts in cataloging, including two catalogers prominently featured in the film: Tina Gross (Metadata and Cataloging Librarian, North Dakota State University) and John DeSantis (Cataloging and Metadata Services Librarian, Dartmouth College). Tim A. Thompson, Discovery Metadata Librarian at Yale University, will join them. The panel will provide an opportunity for an in-depth discussion of cataloging and other library issues raised in the film.
This discussion is open to anyone at IU and beyond. The organizers want to know how many people to expect, though, so please register in advance!
