Playaway View devices are generally cataloged as videorecordings, with the following exceptions.
Chief source of information
Use the player's label as the chief source of information. If there isn't a label, prefer the most comprehensive title for the set, which will usually be on the container. Use AACR2R 7.0B2 to determine the prescribed sources of information for each area of the description.
s when the year of the original material is the same as the year the Playaway View was released. Use
p with the original date in Date2 when the year of the original material is at least one year different from the year the Playaway View was released.

- Physical description note (500)
- Since these devices do not require AA batteries and do not require a power cord to play and thus are different from Playaway audio players, optionally include a note about the power source.
500 Powered by rechargable battery.
- Since the device includes both a speaker and a headphone jack, there is no need to include a note that headphones are not necessary for audio playback.
- Summary (520)
- Since it is a videorecording, always include a summary.
- The 520 field is repeatable, so items that collect material that was originally published separately may either have one summary note for the entire item or a separate summary note for each piece.
- Contents (505)
- Since most Playaway View devices contain multiple videos, list each in a contents note. If the playing time of each is given, also include that information.

- Genre headings (655)
- There is no specific genre/format heading for Playaway View devices.
- Include any genre headings that are relevant to the content, such as

- Since the records will usually have title main entry, include an added entry for the publisher and the company responsible for creating the content

- Analytic entries (740)
- Since the contents of these devices were typically previously released in another format, include analytic entries for each item in the contents note, so that browse and exact searches for those titles can retrieve all formats.
