Artists' videos present some challenges to cataloguers. How to select the source of information, how to describe them in ways which will help library users to find them, and particularly how to facilitate subject access are matters addressed in this article. With reference to the artist's video collections at Goldsmiths, the author considers interpretations of the rules for cataloguing art documentation and moving image material and discusses how they can be applied to video works and art documentation from contemporary art practices.
