ALA Supports Revised Library of Congress Subject Headings

ALA released a statement in praise of “the Library of Congress’s decision to update the cataloging subject headings ‘Aliens’ and ‘Illegal aliens.’ The Policy and Standards Division of the Library of Congress, which maintains Library of Congress Subject Headings, announced the decision to replace the terms with new subject headings ‘Noncitizens’ and ‘Illegal immigration’ at its regularly scheduled meeting on November 12.”

Patty Wong, ALA’s president, added, “We are pleased that the Library of Congress is replacing these subject headings, which are both outdated and dehumanizing. This update better reflects common terminology and respects library users and library workers from all backgrounds.”

For more information, read the press release.
