Beyond Books: Cataloging Special Format Items
In this session, participants will learn how to create metadata for several “unusual” item formats: manuscripts, archival collections, artists’ books, zines, and posters. The basic principles of special collections cataloging and relevant cataloging standards like RDA and DACS will also be taught. Participants will then apply these standards to examples provided by the instructors. Attendees may also submit problematic items prior to the conference for instructors to discuss.

Baptism by Barcoding: Introducing Library Student Workers to Special Collections Management
Catalogers at the Utah State University Merrill-Cazier Library are barcoding the entirety of Special Collections and Archives in order to efficiently track the usage of collection items. Students manage the collections and specialize in their different areas. The process involves cataloging, improving existing records, and spreadsheet tracking. Barcoding statistics are totaled and displayed on a physical map of the library. The map playfully markets the progress and value to administration.

Trust Your Gut! Celebrating Special Collections in the Midst of Transformation

A team spent a year identifying opportunities for improvement in the areas of conservation, access, safety, collection management, and policy creation with the intent of improving our ability to prevent theft and damage to collections. A major focus was implementing a full reading room upgrade, including a system for patron registration and record keeping. We want to celebrate our progress toward improvement while continuing our self-evaluation and creating goals for the future.

Describing Absence: An Analysis of the Utah American Indian Digital Archive
The presenters were faced with the task of creating best practices for ethically describing items and collections where information regarding marginalized groups, in this case Native Americans, was never recorded. The metadata of the Utah American Indian Digital Archive was analyzed via OpenRefine to highlight instances of this "archival silence" within the collection. This presentation aims to discuss the process as well as the larger problem of archival silence and how best to mitigate it.
