Card catalogue of video library

File consists of the card catalogue created and used by Dalhousie University's MedIT Department in their work with the Faculty of Medicine. The catalogue consists of a numerical and departmental index of the tapes created by MedIT, with cards in the numerical index cross-referenced in the departmental index and vice versa. Cards in the numerical index contain the title of the video, the tape number, the person who requested the video, and the person's department. Most cards also indicate whether the tape is an original, master, or dub, and, if relevant, another tape may be referenced (e.g., if the tape is a transfer of another tape). The card catalogue also includes an index of 1-inch video tapes, the locations of which are unknown, but most of which were transferred either to VHS or U-matic tapes included in the numerical index. The departmental index consists of cards organized by the department of the individual who requested the video from MedIT. The departments are mostly within the Faculty of Medicine, with a few requests from other faculties at Dalhousie University and from affiliated hospitals and organizations in Nova Scotia. These cards contain information relating to the date of the request, the individual and their department, the name and number of the video, and (optionally) its length and the amount charged for MedIT's services.

Ledgers of video and photograph requests

File consists of two handwritten ledgers used by Dalhousie University's MedIT to document requests for video and photography services. Each entry indicates the type of service and provides the name and department of the person(s) who made the request, the date of the request, and other descriptive information.. Entries are listed chronologically and assigned unique numeric identifiers relating to the date of the request. The first volume includes a page that explains MedIT's filing system.
