Harmful Language Reporting Form

LMxAC is committed to fostering an inclusive and welcoming environment for all of its member libraries’ patrons and staff. We acknowledge that harmful and outdated language exists in our materials’ historical catalog records. The Biased Language Task Force of LMxAC is responsible for upholding the descriptions of our collections in a respectful and accurate manner.

We are committed to updating language that is in our control to edit. Submitting the form below will help us identify descriptions that may require revision. Please see our full Statement on Harmful Language in the Catalog.

Please note that reporting an item does not guarantee that it will be removed or edited. We will review the language and, as appropriate, update it in a way that balances preservation of the original context with our ongoing commitment to describing materials with respectful and inclusive language.
