Primer for Media Resources Librarians.
National Medical Audiovisual Center of the National Library of Medicine, Atlanta, GA.
Basic instructions (suggestions) are provided to help the initiate establish a resource center. The primer begins with some considerations in organizing a media resource collection which includes a brief discussion of the three basic types of media resource programs: reference only, limited acquisition, and permanent collections. This is followed by a brief examination of the factors upon which the type and scope of the program are dependent, including: need/interest, materials on hand, equipment on hand, availability of materials, budget, space, and staff. The instructions end with suggestions for locating materials and for cataloging and indexing the materials. Although this is specifically written for a medical resource center, the general suggestions could be applied to other types of film libraries. (NH)
