Re: [AV Media Matters] Resource descriptors for AV

The closest thing we have are genre terms (not descriptor/subject
headings like MESH). There's a Library of Congress publication
called "Moving Image Materials: Genre Terms", that you can purchase
through LC (800-255-3666). The Motion Picture, Broadcasting and
Recorded Sound Division at LC also created an internal list of genre
and form terms that is available for anyone to use; you can find it
on their web site. Contact Brian Taves for info on that project at:
