A Report Regarding Investigations Prior to the Selection of a Format for Local Original Cataloging of Nonbook Materials.
Current trends are surveyed in the cataloging of nonbook materials and recommendations are made regarding local original cataloging while standard forms are being developed, with further suggestions about storage of these materials. It is recommended that the local cataloging format for nonbook materials be based on the Draft Revision of Chapter 12, Anglo-American Cataloging Rules which applies the International Standard Bibliographic Description to the cataloging of motion pictures and other media. One cataloging form is to be used for all media not yet authorized for computer input with provisions for variations in the physical description. It is further recommended that Library of Congress classification numbers be assigned in brackets for future use in computer retrieval and that a medium designator code plus a serial number be used in the call number. Sample media codes, cards, and work sheets are attached. (Author/DS)
