Exhibiting Regional LGBTQ History in Dallas, Texas

Description: Article on the efforts of the University of North Texas Special Collections to create exhibits featuring LGBTQ history in Dallas, Texas. From 2017 to 2019 archivists and librarians at the University of North Texas Special Collections have worked with community members and city officials to create exhibits featuring archival materials from the LGBTQ Archive. There have been several obstacles to presenting accurate historical interpretation of Dallas LGBTQ community history, including lack of sufficient archival documentation, and differences between archival sources and community members’ personal experiences. Grappling with these challenges has allowed UNT Special Collections archivists and librarians to engage community members in a personal, meaningful discussion, and ultimately have led to both successful exhibits as well as strengthened relationships to LGBTQ community members.

EPIC: An Iterative Model for Metadata Improvement

Description: Abstract: This paper provides a case study of iterative metadata correction and enhancement at the University of North Texas (UNT), within a model that we have developed to describe this process: Evaluate, Prioritize, Identify, Correct (EPIC). These steps are illustrated within the paper to show how they function at UNT and why it may serve as a useful tool for other organizations. We suggest that the EPIC model works for ongoing assessment, but is particularly useful for large remediation and enhancement projects to plan timelines and to allocate the people and resources needed to determine what issues should be addressed (evaluate), to rate their level of severity, importance, or difficulty (prioritize), to define subsets or records that are affected (identify), and to make changes based on prioritization (correct).
