> Proposals: 2022 Core Interest Group Week
> The ALA Core Metadata Interest Group seeks speakers to present at its meeting

> Accessible and inclusive metadata and cataloging principles can ensure that
> online content is free of barriers for the broadest audience possible. Visual,
> auditory, speech, physical, cognitive, and/or neurological limitations may affect
> how users perceive and access your metadata and decrease their ability to find
> the information they need. Unless there is metadata denoting that a video is
> closed captioned, for example, this feature will go undiscovered. Metadata that
> reduces barriers to information is crucial to ensuring that accessible content is
> findable for people with disabilities, and its benefits can extend to the larger
> audience. Have you implemented accessibility metadata or added accessible
> fields to your MARC records to better suit a broader audience? Are you
> experimenting with new approaches to metadata accessibility? If so, we want to
> hear from you! Consider submitting your proposal for a 15 minute presentation
> at the Core Metadata Interest Group session, followed by discussion.
