The main entry or primary access point for moving image material is either the title proper, see 1B, or uniform title, see Appendix A.  Because of the complex interrelationships of persons and corporate bodies generally involved in the creation of a moving image work, main entry by title provides the level of consistency and standardization required for national and international networking or sharing of cataloging data.

Added entries are often needed due to the collaborative nature of moving image works, the importance of subject and genre access, and the presence of additional titles.  For guidelines that supply a framework for the assignment of personal name, corporate body, subject, genre, and title added entries, see Appendix A.

Optionally, archives may choose to use a personal name or corporate body heading as the main entry.
