Introducing the Vanguard Journal of Theology and Ministry!
We have published our first issue featuring articles, book reviews, creative submissions, and art by students and alumni!
Vanguard College Library recognizes that our catalogue and resource descriptions contain language that reflects the biases, norms, and perspectives of the time in which they were created. In particular, for resources about persons and groups, this language is often outdated and harmful. These descriptions also incorporate controlled vocabularies, such as the Library of Congress Subject Headings, which include some headings that are offensive or inappropriate. We use international standards for description, but support and actively participate in efforts to update and change these practices as we strive for descriptions that are inclusive, respectful, and do not cause harm. We acknowledge the critical importance of community consultation in these effort. As residents on Treaty 6 territory and Métis Region 4 we commit to working together with our local communities to make these changes.
