Yale card catalog stop motion
60-second stop motion film starring Yale University’s card catalog (Sterling Memorial Library). Thanks, Emily Lloyd!
For card catalog aficionados: here’s the abstract of Nicholson Baker’s 1996 article in the New Yorker (subscribers can login and read the whole thing), later reprinted in his essay collection The Size of Thoughts. And you could make pilgrimage to the Library Company of Philadelphia, founded 1731: ask to see the card catalog in the basement — it contains handwritten cards!
