From the Publisher
"This is a book which will become a standard work on the subject of cataloguing the moving image, and it needs to be read by those involved in cataloguing in film libraries, archives, and museums, as well as library schools and the more advanced cataloguing courses. Finally, I cannot resist quoting the marvellous dedication at the beginning of the book: 'This book is dedicated to all of the cataloguers who have laboured in the vineyards of bibliographic control for hundreds of years, largely unthanked and unappreciated because, when we do our work well, it is invisible to the catalogue user.'
"Martha Yee is a well-known exponent of moving image cataloguing, and this book is correspondingly authoritative."
The Electronic Library
"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."
"…this is an excellent overview of the challenges, principles, and practices of cataloging moving image materials. It would be a useful textbook for courses on this topic, as well as for in-library training programs."
