Photographs and Negatives: Storage and Care Self-Evaluation Form.
Ellison, John W.; And Others
This form, initially developed from information gathered in an extensive literature search on the subject of storage and care of non-book materials, was designed to assist librarians in evaluating the quality of their storage and care practices for photographs and negatives. The form was field-tested for value and usability in 20 selected institutions representing a variety of types of library situations. Twenty-eight non-book authorities were also sent copies of the form and asked to make recommendations. Forms developed for other media formats--film, tape, maps, microforms, original art, and phonorecords--are listed, as well as sources for rental of related slide tape productions. A rationale for a storage and care program is detailed and recommendations are made. An extensive bibliography on the care of photographs and negatives and a miscellaneous bibliography on non-book materials are included. (JEG)
