Being billed as the 1996 card catalog Phoenix celebration at the University of Central Arkansas’ Torreyson Library, an event will take place Tuesday to mark the death of the library’s card catalog system. The card catalog will be replaced with a new, computerized library system. The celebration takes its essence from the story of the Phoenix, a mythical bird of ancient Egypt which was said to have died every 500 years and then reborn from its ashes. The new integrated online library system, which was developed especially for Torreyson Library, will allow users to create customized reference searches, access the library’s catalog via Telnet, and create bibliographic lists with ease.
