Overcome the challenges of organizing nonprint and electronic resources while adhering to the latest RDA (Resource Description and Access) standards with these proven strategies for media such as cataloging sound recordings, films, video games, maps, kits, electronic resources, and two- and three-dimensional objects.
As more and more media surface for information and entertainment, libraries continue to seek solutions for making AV materials easily accessible to their patrons. For more than three decades, this comprehensive guide has been essential for helping librarians organize a multitude of formats, including audio recordings, films, video games, maps, kits, electronic resources, and two- and three-dimensional objects. Recently updated, this resource now features the latest Resource Description and Access (RDA) guidelines as well as new information to address the needs of larger collections.
Each chapter begins with a discussion of the general problems a particular content delivery method presents, followed by the applicable RDA guidelines. Facsimiles of source material—with appropriate coding/tagging, subject headings, and call numbers—appear throughout the work as helpful reference points. New content includes the construction and use of relationship access points and cataloging large sets of MARC (Machine-Readable Cataloging) records.
