Card Catalog in Austin, TX

If you’re in the Austin area, Julie is selling a 30-drawer card catalog: 33″ x 38″ and 47″ tall, and two pull out shelves per side. She shares: “It was in use in the UT library for a while, so it has the normal chips, wear and tear that come with age and college students. I also have a few drawers full of the cards that came with it if those are of interest to anyone.” The photos are of a duplicate card catalog she’s currently using. If you’re interested, you can contact Julie through her original Craigslist ad, or if you post that you’re interested, I will email you directly with her email address.

Card Catalog for Sale – Pennsylvania

Barbara is trying to sell 2 library card catalogs in Western Pennsylvania. One is a 60-drawer and the other is a 30-drawer. These are from a university library and are mid 1950s.  She has all the brass rods that held the cards in place but they aren’t all showing in the photographs as they’re using the card catalogs to store other items.  She says they’re in pretty good shape.  If you’re interested, please contact Barbara directly at
