Equipment and realia bring great value to the library collections of school, public, and academic libraries. They are essential for learning, professional development, and technology literacy of users. Increasing demand for realia and equipment such as laptops, headphones, digital cameras, computer keyboards, projectors, game consoles and the like requires special attention and support by libraries. Catalog records created for public view should include more descriptive information about each piece of equipment to increase access and circulation of these items.
This presentation is about different kinds of realia and equipment displayed and used in libraries and discusses how to increase discoverability and enhance MARC records representing these collections.
