Film Library Techniques; Principles of Administration. Studies in Media Management.
Harrison, Helen P.
This book is a practical guide to the formation and maintenance of film libraries--specifically newsfilm libraries. Developed in detail are the problems of staffing, layout, planning, economics, copyright, and especially film selection policies. Discussed are handling, storage, and preservation of film along with methods of recording the contents of films; cataloging that material, as well as the films; and general information retrieval processes. The technique of "shotlisting" analysis of films is explained. International efforts to standardize film-handling procedures are also covered. (CH)
