Plain Language Summary
A web illustration by Ashanti Fortson from the Community as Home Portraits project. In the image, two people, Pauline Vetuna and Ruby Allegra from the QBIPOC Collective, sit down, smiling, to coffee together, with papers floating fancifully above their heads. The papers collectively read, "What is also beautiful and exciting is the opportunity to co-create together the kind of spaces we want to see but have been denied in the world as it currently is."
Franklin Catalog identifies books, journals, videos, and sound recordings - in print and electronic formats - available for you to read.
Franklin Catalog uses Library of Congress (LC) subject headings and subject heading subdivisions to describe books, videos, and audio recordings. The LC heading most associated with disability narratives is "People with disabilities."
The Franklin search above combines "People with disabilities" with other subject heading keyword terms which would indicate a personal account, such as autobiographies, biographies, and personal narratives. All together, the search looks like this:
The results have been limited to books and sorted by date descending.
We understand that LC subject headings, often created decades ago and facing bureaucratic change processes, can be outdated, ableist, and offensive. Penn Libraries' DEI Discovery Working Group routinely tries to mitigate harm caused by subject headings by updating and providing alternative language when possible. Please see their Statement of Harmful Language in Penn Libraries Catalogs for more details, including a reporting form.
