In July 2020, The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) Libraries began work towards building a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive organization. One of the ways in which the organization set out to achieve this goal is through the digitization of materials by and about underrepresented and diverse peoples as well as the accurate representation of these individuals and groups in our metadata. This paper describes how the UTA Libraries’ Committee for Metadata and Digitization approached this charge through the creation of three subgroups. There is discussion of the committee’s goals and processes, an evaluation of progress toward meeting objectives, plans for sustaining this work, and a list of proposed strategies for other institutions interested in implementing similar efforts.
