THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS PRINTED CARDS SOME SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENTS

THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS PRINTED CARDS SOME SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENTS The article by Mr. Besterman in the March, 1946, number of the Journal ii. 194205, with its suggestions for recasting the form of the card for inclusion in A catalog of boohs represented, creates a good opportunity for the consideration of the card as a whole, and especially of its layout.

Abstract

The article by Mr. Besterman in the March, 1946, number of the Journal ii. 194205, with its suggestions for recasting the form of the card for inclusion in A catalog of boohs represented, creates a good opportunity for the consideration of the card as a whole, and especially of its layout. Although the form of the card has become established over a long period of years, and the cards themselves have become internationally familiar, these facts do not constitute an argument against future improvement, provided the use of existing cards is not vitiated. Whether any such improvement should be made on the cards or in the Catalog, and how far identity between the two is desirable, are questions beyond the scope of this study. The questions raised, however, relate, mutatis mutandis, to any kind of full catalogue entry.
