Public Library Subject Headings for 16MM Motion Pictures, 1971.
California Library Association, Sacramento.
A subject heading list for 16 millimeter motion pictures is proposed here that is designed to provide audiovisual librarians with a tool which will aid them in making subject indexes for their printed film catalogs and to establish an authority for professional catalogers who may be called upon to catalog 16 mm. motion pictures. In preparing the list, a large number of printed film catalogs from various public libraries were surveyed. Where there was widespread agreement on a particular subject heading, that heading was adopted and incorporated into the list. "Sears List of Subject Headings" was used as an authority for certain other headings, and some were adopted because they are known to be familiar and useful to the public. In the main, general rather than specific headings were used, except in headings such as geographic areas, motion pictures, and United States. This publication is intended to serve as a field test of the list, and it is hoped that practicing audiovisual librarians will report additions, deletions, and criticisms to be incorporated into a final hardbound publication.
