Library card catalogue and the Dewey Decimal System. This makes us very nostalgic. And sneezy. #books
library card catalogue ---almost a relic in today's electronic age,,,do you remember the Dewey Decimal system.....????? ha ha ha ha
library card catalogue - I feel like we should get the time back in our lives that we wasted learning the Dewey Decimal System. lol
Library card catalogue. Can't you just remember sliding out those old heavy drawers? Kids don't even know about the Dewey Decimal System anymore!
The Dewey Decimal System! - A library card catalogue ---almost a relic in today's electronic age Occasionally someone will say "card catalog" to the students and they say, "what's that?"
Want to blow a kids mind? Tell them that the research paper due next week has to be done using ONLY the library card catalogue and the Dewey Decimal System! NO COMPUTERS OR SEARCH ENGINE ALLOWED! Think they'd appreciate us "old farts" a little more then? In today's world, having to do a research paper the old school way is far worse than having "to walk to school, in the snow, up a hill both ways"!

This image shows what information was on catalog cards and how they were organized before catalogs became digital (Bibliovox, 2011). As someone who has limited experience with card catalogs, it is important that I learn more about catalog cards, both from a historic standpoint and a way to help explain the online catalog to those who are only familiar with card catalogs.

What the Catalog Card Tells Us : one of a series of library education visuals designed by Peabody Visual Aids in the 1930s and 1940s, which I salvaged from a throw-away pile at my library school in 2003 : these posters were created under the supervision of visionary librarian Ruby Ethel Cundiff / Bibliovox [http://www.flickr.com/photos/68103485@N05/] @flickr | #neverforget

Card catalogue - (Have said this before: The internet and computer access to books and catalogues are amazingly wonderful, but old card catalogues had fascinating, informed, and sometimes erudite comments by librarians. rw)
Should I be embarrassed to admit that I recognized this card catalog as soon I saw this picture? Yep, it's the catalog I used in college in the 1980s.

Card Catalogue: I pinned this on a history board because they are disappearing. My daughter doesn't even know what a card catalogue is and she's in middle school.

That was pretty much me when I first got my library card. I seriously wanted to just rent every book in the library, just because I could.
And my local library knew me so well I didn't even need my library card... and they would remind me when my favorite authors had new books coming out, and make sure they ordered them!! #Bookworm
I felt this way when mom took us to get a library card. Turns out it was also my first lesson in having debt by I also never returned the books on time lol

Library Card - when I was a kid you had to sign your name on the library book card to check it out. It was so fun to read them to see who had checked out the book before you.
LIbrary Cards one in each library book. You signed your name, the librarian stamped the card and the book with the date it was due back.
Library Card...I just bought a ton of old library books...just for those old cards....from my former high school.
