Language in the Catalogue
We strive to ensure that our materials are inclusive and accessible for all; however, we recognize that wording found in the library catalogue can be outdated and may reflect old biases that would be considered offensive or inappropriate today. These records span a multitude of sources and time periods that don't always reflect our current values. Please let us know if you encounter problematic language on our website. We will review and, as appropriate, update it with our ongoing commitment to describing materials with respectful and inclusive language.
