AV Cataloging

The UCLA Film and Television Archive's Cataloging Procedure Manual (CPM) is now available on the Archive's web site.

It uses a combination of Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd ed. rev. (AACR2R) and Archival Moving Image Materials: a Cataloging Manual (AMIM2) rules, Library of Congress subject headings (LCSH) and Moving Image Materials: Genre Terms (MIM) genre and form terms in MARC 21 format records on Voyager. The procedure manual indicates which rules they follow in any given situation and contains many examples. In addition, the CPM contains local rules for uniform titles, supplied titles, local subject headings and genre/form terms, and terms for use in the physical description of archival moving image materials, with an extensive glossary of the latter, including suggested MARC 21 coding.
