Kula, Sam
Produced as part of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Records and Archives Management Programme (RAMP), this publication provides government and non-government archivists and records managers with a comparative study of past and present policies and practices for selecting moving images for preservation, and with a series of guidelines based upon the most widely accepted of these policies and practices. Sections cover: (1) the history and organization of moving image archives; (2) appraisal or selection standards for motion pictures and their acceptance in archival theory; (3) categorization of archival moving images by provenance, function, and form; (4) moving image appraisal policies and practices recommended by UNESCO and those utilized in the United States, Czechoslovakia, the USSR, Argentina, Malaysia, Canada, and West Germany; (5) the relationship of records management and the appraisal of moving images; and (6) the appraisal of documentation related to the moving images, e.g., production files and critical reviews. Also provided are a series of 14 conclusions related to the appraisal and archival retention of moving images and a bibliography listing publications by more than 250 authors. (ESR)
