UNC Charlotte’s Atkins Library is pleased to invite you to Change the Subject: Language Matters. This event will feature a film screening of Change the Subject, a documentary about a group of college students who challenged anti-immigrant language used in Library of Congress subject headings.

The language we use in resources like library catalogs can impact people’s experiences and feelings of belonging within the campus community. Encountering an outmoded subject term or an insensitively worded resource description while doing research may make some library users feel excluded or othered instead of welcomed. Join us to learn more about how the language we use in catalogs and other search systems matters, and what advocacy is taking place across the country to make the library research experience more welcoming and inclusive.

The event will be held on Thursday, April 25 at 5-6:15 PM, virtually on Zoom. Please register to receive the Zoom link and other important event details.
