In Search of Bibliographic Control for Instructional Motion Picture Films.
Coover, Robert W.
This historical study report describes phases in the development of applicable standards for cataloging instructional motion picture films. Steps leading to the present state of the art are objectively presented, focusing on standards developed to establish bibliographic control of instructional motion picture films, contemporary reaction to such standards, problems relating to these standards, and recurring problems with these standards that may be objectively stated. Historical efforts to establish bibliographic control of instructional motion picture films through establishment of standards for detailing bibliographic information are traced, emphasizing bibliographic elements and arrangement of these elements in a prescribed order. Five chapters include (1) the problem statement and terms definitions; (2) components of bibliographic control, specifically cataloging components and terminology; (3) motion pictures and pre-World War I cataloging records; (4) post-World War II bibliographic control; and (5) summary and conclusions. An extensive, eight-page reference list completes the report. (Author/LMM)
