Abstract: The aim of this thesis is to discuss selected parts of cataloguing both from a practical and a theoretical viewpoint. It presents the basic grounds for cataloguing of printed as well as non-printed materials. The focus lies on the main entry heading and its author/title problem concerning film. The thesis theoretical part consists of an analysis of central documents dealing with the author concept from both a library- and information science perspective and a film science perspective. The practical part consists of interviews from two Swedish public libraries, which have different approaches on presenting films. Theories which have been used are taken from general library- and information science theorists such as Charles Cutter and Ross Harvey as well as cataloguing experts within the library- and information field and film theorists within the film science field. The Study shows that the differences between cataloguing of non-printed materials and printed materials are relatively small except for the main heading. Theorists within the two academic fields are ambivalent whether one can claim the director to be the main author for a film and therefore, its recommended to follow the common praxis of cataloguing and presenting films on their title.
