Most widely held works by Jean Weihs
Nonbook materials; the organization of integrated collections by Jean Weihs( Book )

80 editions published between 1970 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written specifically for school libraries, the principles given can be applied to any library system which houses books and other media together and has a single, unified list of holdings. Following some general rules for descriptive cataloging, the cataloging principles are given for such non-book materials as: (1) filmstrips, (2) slides, (3) transparencies, (4) microforms, (5) pictures, (6) charts, (7) motion pictures, (8) phonodiscs, (9) phonotapes, (10) models and (11) games. A knowledge of book cataloging and basic cataloging is presupposed. It is emphasized that the subject analysis systems chosen by a particular library for its print collection should be used for all media. As there is no consensus among librarians and audiovisual specialists regarding the proper terms to be applied to many media, a glossary of media designations is included in an attempt to standardize terminology.

Metadata and its impact on libraries by Sheila S Intner( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and Danish and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We believe that the community of information professionals who have organized and preserved the world's written treasures for thousands of years will not fail to continue to organize and preserve the world's digital treasures in the future, demonstrating their usual sensitivity and creativity, remembering the lessons history has taught them, and keeping in mind the interests of all their user communities, present and future, as they have always done." With these bold words, three mavens of the cataloging world tackle the topic of metadata. Undaunted by its dominance in the lexicon and collective consciousness of the library profession, they deftly anatomize the concept of "data about data" into discrete aspects (Metadata), then relate those aspects to a miscellany of circumstances in which librarians may increasingly find themselves (Its Impact on Libraries.) Part One examines the characteristics of multiple metadata schema, the creation of metadata for both monographic and continuous electronic resources, and its integration into local catalogs and databases. Part Two explores metadata's effect on current developments in online reference, choice of metadata schema, archiving and digital preservation, and professional education, as well as future innovations yet unborn. A must-read for sophisticated information specialists, as well as those who aspire to similar heights of intellectual worldliness. - Publisher
