Nonbook Materials: The Organization of Integrated Collections.
Weihs, Jean Riddle; And Others
This book has been written for all types of libraries and media centres which wish to have an omnimedia catalog, i.e., one in which the entries for all materials, both book and nonbook, are interfiled. In order to integrate all entries successfully the same cataloging principles should apply to all media. A practical solution is to enter and describe non-book materials according to the rules already prescribed for books. Therefore, this volume develops its rules according to the precepts of Parts I and II of the "Anglo-American Cataloging Rules," varying these rules only when the nature of the material demands it. It is impossible to predict new media which may be developed in the future. These rules have been written to encompass the cataloging of new formats of existing media without the confusion and time lapse which attends the adoption of new rules. A knowledge of book cataloging and basic cataloging principles is presupposed. Throughout its text, references are made to the "Anglo-American Cataloging Rules," which is to be used for the detailed construction of main and added entries, dates, format of notes, etc. (Author/SJ)
