On February 23, 2022, Jolande Goldberg, Senior Law Classification Specialist at the Library of Congress, gave a presentation for the Legal Cataloging Forum on the classification aspect of indigenous data sovereignty entitled Information & Data: Information Society and Personal Rights & Interests. A Review of Indigenous, Common & Civil Law Classification Patterns. In this presentation, Jolande discussed the changes and updates proposed to Library of Congress Classification K schedules for works on data sovereignty and information privacy. The presentation covered an extensive discussion on the subject matter including terminology, relationships, and hierarchies in the classification schedules (both global and regional scopes), open access to data, information justice, and classification patterns. This column will focus on indigenous data sovereignty and data privacy and their proposed updates in indigenous and common law classification schedules.
