Hannon Library and member of the Homosaurus Editorial Board. Standard indexing and classification systems do not offer a sufficiently detailed and up-to-date vocabulary to retrieve the wealth of resources available. About 15 years later, the thesaurus was transformed by adding more inclusive terms and making the structure more hierarchical, creating a second edition.
This allows library, archives, and digital collections to describe their LGBTQ collections using the same vocabulary, and then to link their use of the index terms or subject headings to the latest updated form in the online vocabulary. Afterwards, we talked and he invited me to join the international editorial board he was setting up for the Homosaurus, so that we could work together to improve the vocabulary.
Seven board members started meeting online through Skype or BlueJeans every months, starting in August At first we mostly discussed which terms in the original Homosaurus were not LGBTQ-specific and should be discarded, and then eventually we moved on to adding many new terms, including many transgender terms from the Digital Transgender Archive. A few members left and joined the Editorial Board over the past 3 years. Since it was launched online on May 1, , we have started publicizing the Homosaurus so that we can increase its use.
We have also created some publicity materials such as the logo on this page , and have added two new members to help us revise and maintain the linked data vocabulary. There is now a page on the website for submissions of new terms and for suggestions of further revisions. LMU Library News.
