If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a photo taken inside of a library must be worth at least a million words.
This photo is my contribution to #WordlessWednesday. Or shall we say, Nearly Wordless Wednesday?
(I’m looking at you, Nearly Headless Nick.)
This is the card catalog at the Institute Library in New Haven, CT, which is still being updated using the Borden Classification System.
Electronic databases are convenient and have taken over for good reasons, but I do miss the tactile pleasure of a card catalog. Do you know of a library that is still using — and updating — their card catalog?
