Non-book materials

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Non- book materials (also often referred to as non-books after the English term ) are media that are not books . These include, for example, electronic media such as CDs and DVDs, games, works of art such as sculptures or paintings, slides, tapes, electronic online resources. The term is important in the book trade and within the framework of library regulations to distinguish books and other media from one another. In contrast to books, the reduced VAT rate does not apply to non-books. As a rule, they are not subject to fixed book prices .

They are cataloged according to the rules for the alphabetical cataloging of non-book materials (RAK-NBM).
