Daily Thoughts 8/3/2010 ( Librarians Social Networks )

Copyright catalogs at the Library of Congress. Located in room LM-404 of the James Madison Memorial Building, Washington DC. The pre-1978 indexes to the copyright records were manually entered on 3 by 5 inch (76 by 127 mm) cards that were stored in file drawers. 30 April 2009, Michael Holloway, Public Domain.  Card catalogs drawers which are emptied of the cards are the perfect size to store audiocasette containers.  These of course are also obsolete.  Now they make nice places to put items in for art projects.  They use card catalogs drawers to put items in the childrens room of Poets House in New York as part of an art display.
