Featured Panel: The New Library of Congress Immigration Subject Headings: History, Policy, and Implementation
Late last year, and after many years of controversy, the Library of Congress revised its immigration subject headings to eliminate the terms alien and illegal alien. Please join a panel of academic librarians as they discuss the grassroots movement that advocated for this change, as well as the practical aspects of implementing these revisions at the University of Minnesota.
