Microforms in Libraries; A Reader.
Diaz, Albert James, Ed.
A collection of recent articles on microforms has been compiled to give students and practicing librarians a basic understanding of all aspects of micropublishing as it applies to libraries, with emphasis on library usage rather than microform technology, on the practical rather than the theoretical, on the present rather than the past. Six major topics are covered: (1) introduction to microforms, which includes a brief history of micropublishing, microform orientation, and articles on micropublishing; (2) organizing the microform collection, which as sub-chapters on operational problems such as acquisitions, cataloging, organization, hardware, and storage; (3) bibliographic control; (4) applications; (5) standards and specifications, which includes a descriptive article on the importance of standards and two filming specifications, one for books and pamphlets and the other for newspapers; and (6) user reactions.
