Determination of an Effective System of Bibliographic Control of Microform Publications. Interim Report.
Reichmann, Felix; Tharpe, Josephine M.
This interim report provides some guidelines for the bibliographic control of microforms which at the present time is either inadequate or non-existent on a local level within a given library. A literature search and direct inquiry of librarians revealed that adherence to cataloging rules is inconsistent, there is wide variation in microform classification, microform listing in public catalogs is unsatisfactory, guides for microform holdings are not widespread or standardized, microforms are universally shelved separate from the book collection, microform service is assigned to professional librarians infrequently, U.S. librarians are dissatisfied with their own lack of bibliographic control and the "National Register of Microform Masters" is neglected. Chapter VI lists recommendations for alleviating these problems. A guide to microform bibliographies is appended. (AB)
