This article presents annotations by six authors for seventy-four English language books, articles, and theses and dissertations addressing ethical and moral issues in cataloging practice and theory. An initial list of potential works for annotation was created from the “Cataloging and Social Justice” post in the Research about Cataloging and Assessment and more… blog by Jessica Schomberg, and a Google Scholar search for works which cited Prejudices and Antipathies: A Tract on the LC Subject Headings Concerning People by Sanford Berman. Additional articles which the authors were already aware of or encountered serendipitously were also considered for inclusion. Works and their annotations were divided into four categories: Race, Ethnicity, and Nationality; Gender and Sexuality; Physical Characteristics, Ableism, Medical Conditions, and Disabilities; and Multiple Categories or General Discussion. Articles which the authors were not able to annotate due to other obligations and disruptions due to the COVID-19 Pandemic were included in the Cataloging Ethics Bibliography maintained by the Cataloging Code of Ethics Steering Committee.
