Overview

Libraries, archives, and museums hold a wide variety of moving images. all of which require the same level of attention to issues of organization and access as their print counterparts. Consequently, the people who create collection level records and metadata for these resources need to be equally conversant in the principles of cataloging. Martha Yee covers both descriptive (AACR2R, AMIM, and FIAF rules) and subject cataloging (with a focus on LCSH). In the process, the reader is encouraged to think critically and to be prepared to make decisions in ambiguous situations where solutions to problems are not always obvious or clearly dictated by specific rules.

Editorial Reviews

"Encouraging the reader to think critically and be prepared to make decisions in ambiguous situations where the solutions might not always be obvious or clearly dictated by rules, Moving Image Cataloging stimulates critical thinking with exercises at the end of each chapter, providing suggested (but not absolute) answers at the end of the book. Primarily geared for catalogers of moving images, the work also teaches how to make decisions that impact the catalog and, more generally, how to search a catalog."
