Things I've picked up along the way...

The card catalog in the nave of Sterling Memorial Library at Yale University. I stumbled across this picture whilst looking for something else. Isn’t it amazing? The scale of it is dazzling. I remember rows and rows of card indexes at the Bodleian, but nothing like the grandeur of this room at Yale. As lovely as it is though, it does make me grateful for computers!
I think the fact that I like pictures like these mean I firmly occupy librarian territory acording to @daveyp's Librarian vs. Shambrarian Venn diagram.
