    Prehistoric? The last time I worked in a library with a card catalogue was 2004. Admittedly, it was in the Middle East, not NZ, but still…

    It is pretty freaky that only 30 years ago, that is what public access to a large database looked like. And of course, the bigger the database, the more intimidating the access system: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/annarbor/sets/72157623414542180/.
