Specifications for the Microfilming of Books and Pamphlets in the Library of Congress.
Library of Congress, Washington, DC. Photoduplication Service.
The procedural and technical changes in the Library's photoreproduction methods adopted since 1964 (when "Specifications for Library of Congress Microfilming" was published) are embodied in this publication. In drawing up separate specifications for the several different bibliographic groups, the Photoduplication Service intends to place special emphasis on the definition of criteria regularly employed to evaluate microfilms under consideration as additions to the Library's permanent collections. No attempts is made to cover every problem which may arise or to provide final answers to questions still controversial. Sections of the publication are as follows: 1) Preparation; 2) Technical Guide; 3) Filming Procedures; 4) Processing the Exposed Film; 5) Inspection of the Film; 6) Intermediate Copies; 7) Research Use Copies; 8) Storage; 9) Glossary; 10) Selected References. Reference is made to applicable standards approved by the American Standards Association and its successor, the American National Standards Institute. Parallel recommendations, as far as published on the international level by the International Organization for Standardization, are available at the same address. (JB)
