Formats Used in the Library Multimedia Union Catalog.
Phillips, Clifford R.
Designed to outline and illustrate, through the use of a card catalog or computer produced catalog, the various formats used to describe the collection of the Inglewood Public Library, this report details a nonautomated approach representative of those commonly used in libraries prior to the use of data processing applications. The goal of providing optimum bibliographic access to the library's collection resulted in the expansion of the adult card catalog into a multimedia union catalog. Grouped according to their similarities, the various media are covered in seven chapters: (1) printed materials, including books, periodicals, pamphlets, catalogs, directories, service collections and sewing patterns for both children and adults; (2) pictorial materials, including art reproductions, pictures, posters, and study prints; (3) films, filmstrips, and slides; (4) adult and children's sound recordings; (5) adult and children's kits; (6) children's games; and (7) computer produced catalogs, including test, film, large print, and periodicals catalogs. Plans and projects relating to format for the fiction catalog, the reference catalog, and young adult books are described, and a bibliography is provided. (Author/FM)
