I was interested to come across the University of Bristol’s ‘Card catalogue online’, a resource based on scanned images of catalogue cards.
The digitisation project involved scanning 300,000 cards covering pre-1978 material held in the Arts and Social Sciences Library and all other branch libraries (except the Medical Library).
As well as providing a browse facility that gives users access to images of the original cards onscreen, Card Catalogue Online is able to perform full-text searches of the item descriptions recorded on the cards.
Edmund Burke was a sometime MP for Bristol.
