English summary: The holdings in libraries, archives, and general media collections today are typically multimedial. In this book, the technical elements of non-print media, their production and distribution, the structures and the foci of their content and representational forms are all brought together in context: music, film, electronic publications, literature and childrens programs, computer and video games, essential results of reception studies in connection with non-print media, media-collection praxis (in libraries, archives, radio archives, and media centers among others) in terms of holdings, development, and use. Non-print media, online publications, microforms, and image media (among many others) are explicitly dealt with in this book. This hand- and textbook is aimed at practitioners in information services and media collections such as libraries or media archives, who wish to update their expertise in the field through a systematic review of all related subjects, especially for those who have enrolled in classes for media or library sciences at a university or technical school.
