I'm going to pause for a second and grab a phrase from my own book chapter re: trans people's dead names: "Does a public discussion of one’s complex name give catalogers license to ignore expressed wishes and display it in every catalog record of one’s work forever?"
There's a difference between information being out there and our decisions to codify it as "authority" and just saying a thing doesn't license everyone to use that thing about you forever.
The next section header is "unreliable library systems" and oh I just sad-laughed.
After 25 years of FRBR, 10 years of FRAD, over 5 years of MARC 3xx, we are really not using them in any meaningful way. Few things are using authorities metadata for user experience.
I think the point earlier about US women politicians is relevant here. If we only have wee bits of data, it's not worth making actionable to find 19 women when we know we'd leave out so many others...
glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles.
