Janet laments the decline of library card catalogs and links to this tool for wallowing in card-file nostalgia.
When I was a student at UCSD, the library was slowly eliminating their collection of cards. All of the library records were available at computer terminals, and stacks of old cards were left by the terminals for use as scrap paper. I kept them as bookmarks on occasion and probably still have a few.
