Throwback Thursday:YOUR Old School Library Catalog
For Throwback Thursday we thought we would showcase a crucial piece of library technology from the library’s past, its first catalog. This version is actually a 1968 copy of Books in Print. Books owned by the Eastern Campus Library were outlined in red, and the cataloging librarian would meticulously record the item’s call number in the margins. Patrons could then take this call number and locate the book on the shelves.
