Oberlin College News

The Oberlin College Libraries Discovery and Metadata Services team, led by Timothy Keller, has been working in collaboration with the Five Colleges of Ohio Collection Services Subcommittee to implement a LC subject term flagging project in the Oberlin College library catalog (OBIS), and in CONSORT, the shared catalog of Denison University, Kenyon College, Ohio Wesleyan University, and College of Wooster. The project went live to the public in mid-February, and small red flags now appear beside problematic subject headings, alerting library users that these subject terms are being reviewed.  The source for the flagged terms is the complete list of problematic subject terms maintained by The Cataloging Lab, an open, community-driven initiative that facilitates collaborative development of proposals for new and modified subject headings to be submitted to the Library of Congress. Clicking on the flag brings up a contextual note that leads to the “subject term flagging info” page on the libraries’ website.  Contact Tim Keller for more information.
