Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums’ (GLAM) metadata has historically constructed and enforced an oppressive and self-serving vocabulary and narrative style that support hierarchical power structures. Presenters from BUAM and NBHFM will speak on their respective projects that actively challenge these issues through processes that center transparency, iteration, collaboration, and consultation. Although we present from our specific experiences and collections, we will devote a large portion of our time to a conversation with participants about similar challenges at their institutions, initiatives they have implemented or are actively developing, and the importance of restorative, proactive, and inclusive metadata.
