The Card Catalog

A card catalog system has been used since the beginning of the excavations to record the important information related to inventoried objects. Lucy Talcott, one of the original members of the Agora Excavations staff, is credited with its development into an elaborately cross-referenced record system. The catalog card became the most important link to all the relevant data concerning an object and has only recently been replaced by a digital database.
