This poster describes our roles in the creation of the “Women’s Education and Leadership at Rutgers” portal in RUcore: Rutgers Community Repository and our reflections on the relationships and power dynamics present in the creation of metadata for video interviews. We catalogued video interviews with Douglass College Alumnae and affiliated faculty conducted for June Cross’s documentary “From the Boarding House to the Board Room: 250 Years of Women at Rutgers.” These interviews trace the complex history of women’s education at Rutgers. This project advances research and learning across Rutgers University, fosters collaborations among activists and gender scholars around the globe, and contributes to the development of new knowledge in the interdisciplinary field of women’s and gender studies. Schwartz and Cook (2002) argue, “The power of archives, records, and archivists should no longer remain naturalized or denied, but opened to vital debate and transparent accountability” (pg. 1). In our work with this archival material, we needed to carefully consider the stories of interviewees from traditionally underrepresented groups. For example, we assigned subject terms using a combination of Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) and locally assigned terms to more adequately capture the stories in each video. Simply using LCSH terms did not fully represent the complicated history of women’s education at Rutgers. As metadata creators, we challenged ourselves to be critical of our roles and decision-making processes especially when representing marginalized voices and stories of people still affiliated with our institution.
