Organizing Audio-Visual Instructional Materials in the Madison Public Schools.
Holmes, Rose; Rusch, Nancy
The manual for librarians in the Madison Public School system offers guidelines for cataloging nonbook materials. The purposes in preparing this manual are threefold: to provide the best information about these nonprint items based on school special needs; to make these materials easy to find and use; and to assist both students and teachers in their search for all related materials on the subject. These goals influenced the decisions on cataloging format for bibliographic data describing nonbook materials. Standard library principles of cataloging are adapted for the handling of these materials. The system governing audio-visual media cataloging generally follows an arrangement by Dewey class number establishing consistency in methods for processing both books and nonbook items. The manual is arranged into the following eight sections: 1) an introduction; 2) cataloging and housing instructions for still-projection materials, motion picture projection materials, audio materials, flat graphic materials, three dimensional materials and multi-media materials study kits; 3) locally produced materials; 4) ephemeral materials; 5) cataloging guide; 6) storage and summary table; 7) bibliography; and, 8) appendix: School Symbols and Codes.
