Subfields

 
‡a Category of material   A one-character alphabetic code that indicates the category of material to which the item belongs is a projected graphic.
g Projected graphic. The item is a projected graphic, which is defined as a two-dimensional representation intended to be projected without motion by means of an optical device, for example, a filmstrip, slide, or transparency.
‡b Specific material designation   A one-character alphabetic code that describes the special class of material (usually the class of physical object) to which an item belongs (e.g., a slide).
c Filmstrip cartridge. The item is a filmstrip that is encased in a cartridge and that has the ends joined to form a loop. A cartridge denotes a permanently encased single reel of film or tape that has the ends joined together to form a loop that provides playback without rewinding.
d Filmslip. The item is a short filmstrip that is not in a roll.
f Filmstrip, type unspecified. The item is a filmstrip other than a filmstrip cartridge, filmslip, or filmstrip roll or is an unspecified type of filmstrip. Formerly, Other type of filmstrip.
o Filmstrip roll. The item is a filmstrip roll, a roll of film on which still images are recorded, presenting an integrated communication. It is intended for projection frame by frame. Usually 35 mm roll.
s Slide. The item is a slide, which is transparent material on which there is a two-dimensional image, usually held in a mount, and designed for use in a projector or viewer. Includes modern stereographs, e.g., Viewmaster reels.
t Transparency. The item is a transparency, which is made of transparent material on which an image is recorded. Ttansparencies are designed for use with a projector or a light box. X-rays are included here.
u Unspecified. An item for which the specific material designation is not specified.
z Other. An item for which none of the other codes is appropriate.
‡d Color   The color characteristics of the item.
a One color. The image is printed or executed in a single color (i.e., monochromatic). In projected graphic materials, it is used only for transparency sets. Does not include black.
b Black-and-white. The image is printed or executed in black-and-white. Refers to monochrome photographic materials (including film) and videorecordings, or to overhead transparencies executed in black-and-white. Does not include tinted, toned, or stained items.
c Multicolored. The image is printed or executed in more than one color. The color is a result of a number of processes, either photographic or electronic, capable of reproducing a reasonable range of hues, or of original application of color materials, for example, paint. Code c is used for color photographic processes (filmstrips, transparencies, and slides) and multicolored overhead transparencies.
h Hand-colored. The image, produced by a printing or photographic process, is hand colored. Code h is rarely used with commercial audiovisual materials since these are not typically issued with hand coloring. Code h takes precedence over any other code.
m

Mixed. Work or collection is a combination of one color, black and white, colored, hand colored, and/or other images. Information for this data element is based on such phrases as the following: some color, some black and white, 25 gold toned, color with black and white sequences, etc. which usually appear in other parts of the bibliographic record.

n Not applicable. The item has no images.
u Unknown. The color characteristics of the projected graphic are not known.
z Other. None of the other codes is appropriate. Includes tinted, toned (e.g., sepia toned photographic items), or stained items.
‡e Base of emulsion   The type of material for the base of the emulsion of the photonegative, filmstrip, slide, or transparency.
d Glass. The primary support/base of the emulsion material is glass, a hard, brittle substance, typically transparent or translucent.
e Synthetic. The primary support/base of the emulsion material is synthetic (e.g., plastics, vinyl, etc.). Most commercially issued overhead transparency sets have a synthetic primary support material, unless known to be otherwise.
j Safety film. The primary support/base of the emulsion material is safety (i.e., not nitrate) film. For all commercially issued filmstrips and slide sets, assume that the base of the emulsion is safety film unless known to be otherwise.
k Film base, other than safety film. The primary support/base of the emulsion material is not safety film.
m Mixed collection. The primary support/base of the emulsion material varies for different items in a collection. Typically this would be used for groups of projected graphics on various bases.
o Paper. The primary support/base of the emulsion is any kind of cellulose-based paper, a substance made from wood pulp, rags, or other fibrous material, usually in thin sheets.
u Unknown. The primary support/base of the emulsion material for the projected graphic is not known.
z Other. A primary support/base of the emulsion material for which none of the other codes is appropriate.
‡f Sound on medium or separate   Indicates whether the sound is on the same medium or a separate medium from the projected graphic (i.e., on the accompanying material). Assume that the item has sound and that the sound is on the medium, unless otherwise noted. If the item is silent, do not use subfield ‡f.
a Sound on medium. Sound is present and is on the item.
b Sound separate from medium. Sound is present but it is on the accompanying item.
u Unknown. The presence of sound on the item is not known.
‡g Medium for sound  

The specific medium used to carry the sound of an item (whether the sound is on the projected graphic or separate) and the type of sound playback required for the item. Used in conjunction with the information coded in subfields ‡f (Sound on medium or separate) and ‡g (Dimensions). Typically, the carriers of sound are: 1) optical and/or magnetic track on a film reel or encased in a cassette or cartridge; 2) audio or video tape which may be on a reel or encased in a cassette or cartridge; and 3) sound or video disc. If the projected graphic is silent, do not use subfield ‡g.

 

a Optical sound track on motion picture film. Sound to accompany a projected graphic is carried on an optical track that is part of a film. In coding 16 and 35 mm films, it is usually assumed that sound is carried on an optical track.
b Magnetic sound track on motion picture film. Sound to accompany a projected graphic is carried on a magnetic track that is part of the film. 70 mm motion picture films often include magnetic sound tracks.
c Magnetic audio tape in cartridge. Sound to accompany an item is carried on a magnetic audio tape cartridge.
d Sound disc. Sound to accompany an item is carried on a sound disc. This method of providing for sound is typically used with filmstrips. Sound discs include 7, 10, and 12 inch vinyl phonograph records (identified as analog sound discs in subfield ‡b of field 300) and 4 3/4 inch compact discs (identified as digital sound discs in subfield ‡b of field 300).
e Magnetic audio tape on reel. Sound to accompany an item is carried on a reel of magnetic audio tape.
f Magnetic audio tape in cassette. Sound to accompany an item is carried on a cassette of magnetic audio tape.
g Optical and magnetic sound track on motion picture film. Sound to accompany a projected graphic is carried on both an optical and magnetic track.
h Videotape. Sound to accompany an item is included as part of a videotape. Videotape is not ordinarily used to record only sound.
i Videodisc. Sound to accompany an item is included as part of a videodisc. Videodiscs are not ordinarily used to record only sound. A distinction must be made between videodiscs (e.g., 12 inch laser-scan videodiscs that include video information) and compact discs that are used to record sound only (e.g., 4 3/4 inch audio compact discs). The technology to physically record video or audio information on digital disc systems is the same.
u Unknown. The medium for sound is not known.
z Other. A medium for sound for which none of the other codes is appropriate.

 

‡h Dimensions   The width or dimensions of filmstrips, slides, or transparencies. Width is given for filmstrips. Height and width are given for slides and transparencies. Only the most common dimensions are indicated. Use code z for widths or dimensions not on the list.

Filmstrips/filmslips: Codes must match the dimensions in the physical description exactly.

a Standard 8 mm. The width of the film is standard 8 mm. Film termed Mauer 8 mm is recorded as code a.
b Super 8 mm/single 8 mm. The width of the film is super 8 mm. Single 8 mm film is a Japanese equivalent of super 8 mm film.

Slides: Codes must match the dimensions in the physical description exactly, including the size of the mount.

j 2 x 2 in. (5 x 5 cm). The dimensions of the slide in its mounting are either 2 x 2 in. or 5 x 5 cm.
k 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 in. (6 x 6 cm). The dimensions of the slide in its mounting are either 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 in. or 6 x 6 cm.

Transparencies: Use the code that most closely approximates the dimensions in the physical description, including the size of the mount.

s 4 x 5 in. (10 x 13 cm). The dimensions of the transparency are close approximates to the dimensions the specific code represents.
t 5 x 7 in. (13 x 18 cm). The dimensions of the transparency are close approximates to the dimensions the specific code represents.
v 8 x 10 in. (21 x 26 cm). The dimensions of the transparency are close approximates to the dimensions the specific code represents.
w 9 x 9 in. (23 x 23 cm). The dimensions of the transparency are close approximates to the dimensions the specific code represents.
x 10 x 10 in. (26 x 26 cm). The dimensions of the transparency are close approximates to the dimensions the specific code represents.

Obsolete codes: Do not use. These obsolete codes still appear in records.

u 7 x 7 inor 18 x 18 cm. Use redefined code y.
y Unspecified. Use redefined code u.
‡i Secondary support material   The type of material of the mount of a slide or transparency for a projected graphic. If in doubt, or if there there is no secondary support, do not use subfield ‡i. Do not use subfield ‡i for filmstrips.
c Cardboard. Cardboard mount. Slides and transparencies cataloged from data sheets are assumed to have cardboard mounts unless otherwise known.
d Glass. The glass mount that usually covers the film base but should not be the primary support for the film emulsion.
e Synthetic. The secondary support material is synthetic (e.g., plastics, vinyl, etc.).
h Metal. Metal is usually used to frame larger projected graphics that need better support.
j Metal and glass. The metal portion is usually a frame that holds one or two pieces of glass to support the film base. The glass should not be the primary support for the film emulsion.
k Synthetic and glass. The synthetic material, e.g., plastics, vinyl, etc., is usually used as a frame to hold one or two pieces of glass to support the film base. Glass should not be the primary support for the film emulsion.
m Mixed collection. The secondary support material varies for different items in a collection. Typically this is used for groups of projected graphics on various secondary support materials.
