Summary Many librarians hesitate to embrace film, and develop film collections half-heartedly. A glance at some of the bibliographic description will show a diversity of inconsistent practice. Higgins addresses these concerns, and aims to offer librarians a primer on comprehending film itself: its formats, its vocabularies, and its participants. He shows how your collection development policies must cover questions of currency of titles and the physical storage of the items.film and video collections : a guide to using RDA and MARC21-- (Source of description not identified).
