Speaker spotlight: Rebekah Taylor

Describing and developing terminology for multiple identity collections

RT - Rebekah Taylor“This paper introduces the start of cataloguing project, involving research into terminology and description, controlled vocabulary, and ways to improve collections’ searchability. This focuses on the Working Press archive, books by and about working class artists, 1986-1996, the related book and zine collections, whose authors are often unidentified, or with pseudonyms, and the Tessa Boffin, 1980s-1990s photography LGBTQ. These collections deal with multiple identities –subjects include race, gender, LGBTQ, disability, feminism and lesbianism. This project is starting to explore how to describe these specific collections, through looking at controlled vocabulary, such as library of congress, and Getty vocabularies, uncontrolled vocabulary, and research into problems with both. The project also looks at work to interact with the communities featured in these collections, such as the writers featured, the extent they are involved within description, and how to involve communities, including digitally and with digital technologies.”

I have been working as the Archivist & Special Collections Officer, since 2012, after doing an MSc at Aberyswyth. I am particularly interested in working with art activism collections, utilising in learning and teaching, and working with artists responding to the archive. Work produced includes developing LGBTQ exhibitions, an exhibition on the theme of rethinking the body, and co-authoring a paper in the Arts Library Journal on archives in information literacy.
