Anglo American cataloging rules do have specific designations for
audio-visual materials.

Rule 1.1C is the rule giving the General Materials Description (GMD)
- sound recording, motion picture, computer file, etc.

Rule 1.5B is where you tell exactly what it is - audiocassette,
compact disk, 3/4 in. video, 16mm, etc. - and how many you have.

You can get more information and up-to-date information if you speak
with a cataloger at either a main branch library or a college
