Easy Method for Inventory-Taking and Classification of Audio-Visual Material. First Edition, Revised.
Lamy-Rousseau, Francoise
The alphanumeric code is a system put forward with the hope that it will bring uniformity in methods of inventory-taking and describing all sorts of audio-visual material which can be used in either French or English. The alphanumeric code classifies audio-visual materials in such a way as to indicate the exact nature of the media, the format, the year the document was edited, and the color if any. The classification systems actually in use regroup all documents by subjects. The alphanumeric code can be added by combining it with either of the following: (1) key words assembled on cards in alphabetical order in the same manner as subject-headings are traditionally classified, (2) key words assembled on periodical and cumulative lists with the help of a computer and (3) traditional classification systems such as Dewey Decimal, Library of Congress and the Universal Decimal Classification. The code can also be easily combined with the Uniterm Indexing System. (Author/SJ)
