What are the Parts of a Card Catalog?

The library card catalog is an excellent way to find what you need there. The parts of the catalog break down the information found there so that it is easier to find things. The first piece of information is the author’s name or the name of the organization that published the work. The second is the title of the work. The fourth is subject. Another is the ISBN or International Standard Book Number. The other piece of information is the Dewey Decimal System number of the work. Many larger libraries now have their card catalogs computerized which makes searching for something much easier. If you have any questions in how to use the card catalog at your library, ask the librarian. They usually are very happy to help since helping you keeps them from having to put up returned books or some other dull task. For more information, look here:
