The Organization of Nonbook Materials in the Laboratory School Library, North Texas State University; An Outline. Revised Edition.
In devising a satisfactory solution to the problem of organizing and cataloging nonbook materials, the Laboratory School< Library kept two goals in mind: (1) to keep the call numbers and catalog card-forms as simply as possible, and (2) to keep the number of catalog cards to a minimum. A full description of the original plan was published in 1954 (out of print). This publication is a supplement to the earlier manual which brings the policy statement up to date. Its main purpose is to ad students in library practice at the Laboratory School. It outlines the main features of the system, indicates types of media not originally included, and illustrates, through sample cards, solutions to cataloging problems encountered since 1954. Suggestions for further simplifications in cataloging suitable for publi schools are also given. The main topics covered include: (1) basic aims of the plan of organization, (2) devices used to achieve the aims, (3) sample call numbers, (4) description of the organization of the various types of nonbook materials, (5) temporary-slip forms for circulation and acquisition, (6) adapted and simplified catalog-card form, (7) basic card-form variations, (8) shelf card, (9) sample shelf-list and catalog cards, and (10) addenda.
