This webinar will examine EDI strategies and challenges in Metadata and Cataloging. We will first investigate what EDI is and why it is essential to this field of Librarianship. Next, we will explore a brief historical timeline that shaped the events of EDI in Metadata and Cataloging. After exploring its origins, we will examine the strategies other academic institutions have formulated, particularly our work here at Clemson University with the Digital Collections. This webinar aims to explore, analyze, and understand EDI techniques in Librarianship and how they can be added or addressed in the audience's collections. Also, we hope that this webinar will create networking opportunities among various librarians who attend or contribute to the current conversation.
