Cataloguing Streaming Media

This may be of interest to some. The OLAC Cataloging Policy Committee, Streaming Media Best Practices Task Force has released the final version of its Best Practices for Cataloging Streaming Media.

“As libraries have begun to collect streaming media relatively recently, the current cataloging standards provide little formal guidance and few examples, and practice varies among libraries that contribute records to OCLC’s WorldCat database. The purpose of this document is to provide “best practice” guidance for the most common situations encountered in libraries … The guidelines and examples in this document pertain to OCLC-MARC tagging and the content is governed by cataloging rules and manuals, including the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, second edition (2002 revision with 2005 update).”

Lot’s of good information and examples in this new area of cataloguing practice.
