The Birth of Electronic Cataloging–Corrected Post

Hi,

This is a re-post of an earlier post…I apparently forgot to include the link to the article in the original postūüė≥ūüôāHere it is below… Best, Brett, Editor

 Travel back in time to 1971 and learn about Ohio University’s Vernon R. Alden Library development of the first electronic catalog in this illustrated article that includes an interview and references to the scholarly literature! It also touches on some other historical themes at the path-breaking library…the picture of card catalog-based library instruction is wonderful.
