A couple of weeks ago I came across a great series of pictures of the library at work in the middle of the 1960s. I’m going to split them into two parts, one of images that I mostly understand and then this second one, which I don’t. These all apparently have something to do with the activity of the front desk but I never lived through this iteration of library technology (I was still a wee lass) so they are rather puzzling. I don’t know what the print-out in the first picture is for, I don’t know what that dial in the second picture is for, and I only included the last photo because the man at the desk in the second photo seems to be holding one of the cards you can see piled up in the third:
As always, your aid is greatly appreciated.
Bonus: I’m not quite done with Christmas.
