Before the Crosby Library was built, the library was located in the Administration Building (now College Hall). The desk in this photograph was located on the second floor of the building.
The drawer was used by the Crosby Library. The entire card catalog system was tossed in 1991 with the implementation of Carl, the new automated system Carl. Catalog cards were no longer needed.
