New LCSH is not going to fix this
A couple notes from the editorial meeting before we begin:
The following subdivisions will be added to lists of free-floating subdivisions:
- H 1147, Animals
$x Phenology (May Subd Geog)
- H 1156, Literatures
$x Garifuna authors
- H 1195, Land Vehicles
$x Motors $x Exhaust manifolds
Also, I’m sure you know that ‘White privilege’ was rejected again by the PSD. April Hathcock has written about this, and you should go read what she wrote. I want to add that this is the second time that they’ve rejected the term, and this time it strongly seems like they’re not amenable to reevaluating it.
“LCSH does not include specific headings for groups discriminated against. Numerous works about white privilege have been assigned the headings Race discrimination and Whites—Race identity, and the meeting wishes to continue that practice. ”
Leaving aside the fundamental misunderstanding of what white privilege is that this statement belies, it sounds like barring a major shift in their practices, they won’t revisit this decision.
