Description/Abstract

This article describes the history of the card catalog, along with the many problems inherent in the system as it was being practiced in 1981. Added to these issues were antiquated subject headings and imposing storage issues. The author suggests that the card catalog will eventually be rightfully replaced fully by computer catalogs.
