While personnel in UMD Libraries' U.S. Government Information department strive to use inclusive language to describe library materials, you may encounter harmful language in our records and in the material itself. Within our records, some harmful words may not be censored because this content provides historical context for understanding the era, attitudes, and opinions of their creators. However, you may also find harmful language because our records have been created over many decades, and older records may contain language that was acceptable historically to people with the power to set norms, but is recognized widely as offensive today.
We may be able to update language in our records, but we are unable to change any harmful language within the material itself. If you encounter harmful language within our records, please fill out our feedback form. We will respond to your feedback and communicate any action we will take to update the language.
