On Display

Catalog cards were used before computers by libraries to index their collections. Each card was individually type-written and carefully organized into drawers for a library user to locate materials. The cards in this exhibit were all used in the Harold B. Lee Library. The purpose of this exhibit is to preserve their fascinating beauty. They are fossils, remnants of a past time.
