The African American Legacy: The Carol Mundy Collection, 1794-2010 contains materials, graphics and artifacts that may be offensive and disturbing. Librarians and archivists strive to preserve this history in a sensitive manner, providing historical context and updating biased terms in metadata description. The University of Central Florida Libraries recognizes the description of digital and archival materials is an iterative and imperfect process and will continue to consult the misrepresented and underrepresented communities for updated language.
