    Libraries are not just repositories of resources but also cultural hubs reflecting the diversity of their communities. Trove API data for cultural sensitivity is an opportunity to enrich library catalogue records as part of a commitment to inclusion and respectful spaces for all users.

    This presentation will explore the practical application of Trove API data to flag culturally sensitive materials within library catalogues.
    The session will cover the approaches from two institutions, the University of Newcastle and Bond University in augmenting Trove’s cultural sensitivity data in Alma and surfacing it in Primo VE.

    Attendees will gain insights into:
    ● The role of Trove API in identifying and flagging sensitive content.
    ● The process of harvesting and integrating Trove data with Alma and Primo VE.
    ● Challenges and wish lists for working with this data
    ● Conversational coding with ChatGPT

    Join us to learn how your institution can leverage Trove API data to make a meaningful impact on cultural sensitivity in your library catalogue records.
