Media Indexes and Review Sources.
Chisholm, Margaret E.
The media field is an emerging and rapidly growing field and the tools for locating and evaluating non-print materials are in a somewhat amorphous developmental stage. This publication was compiled for the purpose of identifying a number of these tools and delineating their special features and values. Specifically the publication serves three primary purposes: (1) as a guide for the librarian to locate reviews of media, (2) as a buying list from which the librarian can identify review tools to purchase and (3) as a study guide and reference source for classes studying the selection of media. Part I describes the various types of indexes and media review literature for the purpose of making comparisons and evaluations. Part II consists of an alphabetical list of indexes and review sources. Part III consists of an index to the review sources, by medium and by subject. Except for lists related to specialized fields, inclusion was limited to those titles published within the last ten years. Only those periodicals which are most readily available through local libraries were included. (Author/NH)
