- Many librarians hesitate to embrace film, and develop film collections half-heartedly. A glance at some of the bibliographic description will show a diversity of inconsistent practice. Higgins addresses these concerns, and aims to offer librarians a primer on comprehending film itself: its formats, its vocabularies, and its participants.
