Inclusive Research Practices

Inclusive research, sometimes referred to as participatory, emancipatory, partnership, and user-led research, decolonizing or indigenous research, seeks to include voices as partners in research and not just subjects and can be used across fields and disciplines. " is conceived as research with, by, or sometimes for them, and in contrast to research on them" (Nind, 2014)

Inclusive Descriptions & Subject Headings

These examples highlight efforts to create ethical, anti-oppressive, and decolonized archival descriptions. 

Suggested Readings 

Subject headings are historically controlled by the standards established by the Library of Congress. These subject headings often reflect a history of racism, sexism, and oppression (e.g. "illegal aliens" for "undocumented immigrants"). Change is slow and challenges are cumbersome, and librarians should be proactive in fighting for language that accurately reflects diversity, equity, and inclusion.
