"Card Catalog"

The old school way to look up books was to look in the card catalog. This massive set of oak furniture held thousands of author, subject and title cards, taking up most of the floor space in between the center staircase and the glass office area on the main floor. The card catalog had its day and now we have something called "Summon," which is the search box on the main library page. Here you can look for both books and all sorts of other materials in one search. Please ask one of us if you have any questions.
