The development of a retrieval system for 35 mm. slides utilized in art and humanities instruction by Robert M Diamond( Book )

5 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A project designed to permit people from different disciplines to locate and retrieve rapidly, and as specifically as possible, all items in a slide collection that fill their specific needs, is the subject of this paper. A field-test of the system for 35mm slides used within the fields of Art, History, Literature and Drama yielded the following main conclusions: that the system is possible and practical; that slide collections should not be limited to one subject area since they tend to have application in more than one discipline; that these collections are most useful when designed to permit a user to locate items using terminology he is familiar with; that the system is easy to use, is compatible with any shelving or cataloguing system, and can be used either with a computerized or manual retrieval system; and, finally, that there is still a great deal of work to be done to refine and perfect the system.
