The Cataloging of Nonprint Media; A Challenge and the Revision of the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules to Meet the Challenge.
Schrader, Vivian L.
The cataloging of nonprint media can be a challenge as well as a problem. Such cataloging at Library of Congress (LC) began with the motion picture project in 1945. Cataloging rules were drawn up which included films, and later filmstrips. LC published its rules in 1965, and in 1967 the rules were included, with minor changes, as Chapter 12 of the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR). In 1968 the scope of Chapter 12 was enlarged to include slide sets, video tapes, and other audiovisual materials. Since that time there have been numerous international meetings and discussions on forms of entry, terminology, and definitions. LC has drafted new rules which may, after some input and revision from American, Canadian, and British library associations, become a new Chapter 12 of the AACR. (LS)
