Summary:"Society's love affair with information has led to a proliferation of media that shows no sign of abating. Not surprisingly, such materials constitute an increasingly vital part of any library's collection, and a particular and ongoing challenge to its catalogers." "Each chapter begins with a discussion of the general problems a particular media presents, followed by a statement of applicable AACR2 rules and an overview of existing Library of Congress rule interpretations. Facsimiles of source material, with appropriate coding/tagging, subject headings, and call numbers (both Dewey and LC) appear throughout."--BOOK JACKET.
