Cataloging Non-Print at NMAC; A Guide for the Medical Librarian.
National Medical Audiovisual Center of the National Library of Medicine, Atlanta, GA.
Cataloging audiovisual materials consists of compiling depictive information which best describes the content and substance of the audiovisual (AV). Since the physical nature of AV's makes it necessary to limit access to them, the catalog entry should contain information which will reduce to a minimum the occasions when the handling of the AV is necessary. The rules for cataloging nonprint media take account of certain attributes of the materials and of the conditions under which they are generally catalogued and used. These rules are designed for the treatment of nontheatrical AV's of the most common kinds. This guide follows the standard library cataloging practices as far as they are applicable to the cataloging of AV's. The "Anglo-American Cataloging Rules" have been expanded and modified when necessary in order to include all elements required for thorough cataloging of nonbook materials. These rules can be adapted for cataloging special types of AV's and aggregations of AV's assembled for special purposes. (Author/NH)
