A conversation about semantic censorship - Discussion

This session will cover the implications of choosing – or not choosing – taxonomy terms viewed through the lens of censorship. This quirk of appelomancy (the wizardry of naming things) came to light during the COVID-19 pandemic. The virus was called by many different names through the course of the pandemic, some very scientific, and others casual even to the point of pejorative. Margie will address the pros and cons of including various terms within a taxonomy.
The NISO Plus conference brings people together from across the global information community to share updates and participate in conversations about our shared challenges and opportunities. The focus is on identifying concrete next steps to improve information flow and interoperability, and help solve existing and potential future problems. Please join us to help address the key issues facing our community of librarians, publishers, researchers, and more — today and tomorrow!
