1Howarth, L.C. ; Knight, E.: To every artifact its voice : creating surrogates for hand-crafted indigenous objects.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 53(2015) no.5/6, S.580-595.
Abstract: This article reports on findings from qualitative research undertaken with a group of Aboriginal seniors in Toronto, Canada, to assess how a community-based collection of handcrafted objects could be used to evoke memories of maker culture (craft), as well as to foster meaning-making--all in the course of gathering elements requisite to representing each item in a documented surrogate. The article will discuss how the need to give voice to this unique collection both challenges and enriches traditional approaches to representing and organizing artifacts. A rethinking of surrogate records that center the Indigenous experience in the cataloging process is proposed.

2Taylor, S. ; Jacobi, K. ; Knight, E. ; Foster, D.: Cataloging in a remote location : a case study of international collaboration in the Galapagos Islands.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 51(2013) no.1/3, S.168-178.
Abstract: The Corley Smith Library is a small, special library located at the Charles Darwin Research Station in the Galapagos Islands. Currently, the library is managed by international volunteer librarians in collaboration with Station staff and local volunteers. Recently the library migrated its online public access catalog to Koha. We describe the process of selecting an open-source integrated library system and implementing Koha. Cataloging in this remote location presents challenges related to technology, staff expertise, language, local practices, and obtaining supplies. We define the strategies to address these issues, including long-term goals of copy cataloging with Z39.50 and remote cataloging by volunteer librarians.
