Example text

The switch to a uniform format for the description of all the nation’s books, the change to agreed standards for cataloging on cards, remains a lasting heritage of the French Revolution. In that respect, the approach marks an impulse in the history of cataloging and the storage of knowledge. It is a matter not just of égalité instead of diversité, nor of the materiality of data carriers (paper versus cardboard), but above all of their arrangement: the insurgent paper is emancipated from the continuous ream and elevated to the precisely cut, standardized dimensions of the index card.

Despite careful instructions, the project fails because of disruptions in the data flow—the plan runs dry all too quickly. The procedure for bibliographical indexing itself again appears only as a step in a divided process, as in all previously described catalog projects since Gessner. The attempt to establish a lasting national monument on a truly contingent basis remains a purely temporary aid for the simplification of sorting. Thus, in France the card index does not establish itself as a permanent search engine and user catalog before the mid twentieth century.

A slip of paper serves as a first pointer, which refers with the help of a call number to an address, the place the text occupies on a shelf. However, it not only points to the location where a text is found—it also embodies a highly compressed data set that characterizes the book to be found. ), but also a short content key. Thus, it delivers a derivative of the text it represents. More than a mere administrator of access, the “title copy” becomes a representation of the text—which now need no longer be read every time.
