In early 2021, the University of Utah embarked on the journey to review and update harmful subject headings in their catalog, digital library metadata, and finding aids. This session will discuss the background of the project and where we are currently at in the process of changing harmful subject headings. 

Learning objectives:
Attendees will learn about the background of the movement towards more inclusive subject headings.
Attendees will learn which resources we relied on for identifying problematic headings.
Attendees will learn how the University of Utah has included campus groups in the process.
