Subject: Re: Questions for Nancy
I've heard that the (international) Joint Steering Committee for the
Revision of AACR plans to include DVDs in the "electronic resource"
category -- they have already made the decision about the GMD. It may or
may not be used for films; in any case this won't happen this year.
But the decision-making process is far past any individual input -- I also
think "electronic resource" is too broad, but it was accepted for the ISBD
several years ago, and that influenced JSC also to accept it.
Public service librarians have a representative to CC:DA, the ALA committee
that handles proposals for cataloging rule revision -- I don't have an ALA
directory here at home -- you might look up your representative and express
