An emerging research area within the field of librarianship examines implicit bias in metadata and cataloging vocabularies. This bias assumes a Western education and perspectives that are not universally shared. It also extends to music cataloging vocabularies, which richly describe Western classical music with a level of granularity not shared by other musics. This poster will draw on the work of leaders in the field to visualize what’s been done with other subjects and to suggest possible paths to honoring non-classical musical traditions and the communities that generate them. I hope it will stimulate a rich discussion of strategies for change.
