Essential background -- Cartographic materials -- Sound recordings -- Motion pictures and videorecordings -- Electronic resources -- Kits -- Microforms -- Internet resources -- Metadata and MARC formats. This how-to covers cataloging nonbook materials more exhaustively than any recent book. Librarians seeking to add Internet resources to their online catalogs will find it especially valuable because its both comprehensive and practical (augmented by a wide range of examples) nature. With the avalanche of brand new resources suddenly pouring into libraries--DVDs, networked electronic resources, Web sites and home pages, databases (including aggregator databases)--it is crucial to provide effective access to them through cataloging. Each chapter discusses one resource type and focuses on the different formats in which it is available. Chapters provide examples, illustrations, and rule interpretations from AACR2R. This book includes visual materials, sound recordings, computer files, multimedia materials, microforms, and a wide variety of Internet resources. It is ideal for both working catalogers and as a text for cataloging classes and workshops.
