A Guide to the Practice of Non-Book Librarianship.
McNally, Paul Terence
To summarize practice in the organization and administration of non-book materials in libraries and to suggest modifications for Australian practice, this guide comprises a procedure manual for handling non-book materials and services in college of advanced education libraries. Sections of the guide cover the range of materials and equipment to be considered; their selection, acquisition, and preparation; bibliographic organization; storage; circulation; equipment; and accommodation. Additional sections detail the various types of non-book materials available and suggest methods for "selling the service" by the librarian. A list of manufacturers, distributors, and sources of information is also included, as well as a selected and annotated bibliography. (SH)
