Card Catalog Events!

"It's All in the Cards: A Yearlong Celebration Commemorating the University Libraries Card Catalog"

Join the University of South Carolina Libraries as we bid farewell to our card catalog!

Flash (Card) Fiction Contest

March 19, 2010 deadline

Can an old library catalog card lead you to wax poetic? Write a song?
Create a short story?

If so, select one of the twelve library catalog cards for your inspiration. Any part or aspect of the card can be used--even the whole thing. And the more creative the better. Flash pieces, as the name suggests, must be very short. In this case, you may
use a maximum of 750 words. Learn more about the contest and submit
your entry from

Art Invitational
