FIAF Moving Image Cataloguing Manual is out
Today, the FIAF Cataloguing and Documentation Commission (CDC) published the FIAF Moving Image Cataloguing Manual. The manual is available for free in PDF format here. The result of many years of labor and collaboration with numerous professionals in the moving image field, the manual is more than a simple revision of The FIAF Cataloguing Rules for Film Archives (1991). It was extended to address the changes in information technology over the past two decades, and align with existing and emerging metadata standards. It is designed to be compatible with a variety of data structures, but is specialized in focus, and draws from modern concepts and standards such as FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records), EN 15907, and RDA (Resource Description and Access).
