RIP WHS Kardex

I just found out today that the old Kardex files that I used to use at the Wisconsin Historical Society are being retired (and all the thousands of serial titles from the Newspapers and Periodicals department are now in MadCat). This system was used at the WHS for more than 40 years, just a few of which I got to spend with James Danky and Tina Enemuoh and a handful of student workers in room 225, typewriters clacking away, even as recently as 2006.
