Within Harvard Library the SACO Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Antiracism Task Group (SACO EDIBA Task Group) "is charged with reviewing controlled terms governed by the Library of Congress Subject Authority Cooperative Program (SACO) for possible revision in light of EDIBA principles." SACO EDIBA’s wiki page tracks headings under consideration and includes a form for staff to submit terms for the group to review. They ask for the following information with each submission: the existing term, a proposed preferred term, the MMS ID of the corresponding bibliographic record in Alma, and references to any related sources and/or justification/reasoning for the change.  

Please direct facultyFaculty, students and all other patrons who find offensive LCSH terms, or who have suggestions for new terms according to these principles, to can send their request in through the HOLLIS Feedback link.  More information on this process may be found under "How do I report an offensive term found in Hollis?" at the Ask a Librarian FAQ page.
