Organizing Nonprint Materials; A Guide for Librarians. Books in Library and Information Science Volume Three.
Daily, Jay E.
A means for organizing nonprint material collections which combines efficiency with effective service is presented. The principles and procedures of such collections are demonstrated and a common denominator for the computerized as well as the manually prepared catalog is established. The book's first part provides a critical introduction to organizational problems and possibilities, defining nonprint materials, the library and its patrons, discussing pictures, recorded sound and films, and offering a procedural manual for nonprint materials. Part II examines specialized tools--notably, a classified list of subject headings--used in organizing picture collections and provides a list of uniform titles, a roster of subject headings for phonograph recordings, and other examples of cataloging nonprint material. Also included are an actual community survey, a guide to the collection serving that community, a procedural manual, and examples of cataloging and indexing entries. An extensive bibliography provides supplemental information. (Author/PB)
