    The catalog of the American Archives of the Factual Film
(AAFF) is now available as a separate database in the Iowa State
University Library's online system, SCHOLAR.  Films in the AAFF
database are cataloged using the MARC format, an international
standard for research materials in libraries.  Approximately 800
of the 12,000 records are fully catalogued, with film summaries
and full credits.  The others are shorter records containing
information about the films.
