Reparative Description Community of Practice (RDCoP)

The Reparative Description Community of Practice (RDCoP) is an informal group to encourage discussion on technical aspects of reparative description practices in library and archives, and share effective practice on working with Indigenous people and community on reparative description in libraries and archives across Australasia. The role of the CoP may over time move focus to include other groups where updated description practices are required.

The CoP coordinates discussion around our focus areas for our three main stakeholder groups: Indigenous people and communities, library and archive staff, and library and archive users.

Meetings are held monthly on Teams, with ample space for general discussion.
