Standards for Cataloging, Coding and Scheduling Educational Media.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Dept. of Audiovisual Instruction.
The use of computer technology for the storage and rapid retrieval of information about instructional media requires the development of nationally accepted guidelines or standards for catalog information and computer input. The Department of Audiovisual Instruction (DAVI) organized a task force to develop standards for cataloging educational media and coding standards for computerized cataloging and scheduling. In cataloging educational media certain information will be required from the computerized process. Standards are offered for the following elements of catalog entries for instructional materials: Title, Type of medium, Physical description, Maturity range of intended user, Content description, Year of production or release, Producer-sponsor-distributor, Subject headings, Classification and identification numbers, and Format. To facilitate information exchange between libraries and resource centers a coding system was recommended which allows for flexibility to accomodate future expansion and permits application to both manual and automated cataloging and scheduling procedures. Standards were written for an identification number incorporating a media code, storage code, year code, sequence number and a print/copy number. Other codes were developed for such elements as title, level, length, etc. (Author/JY)
