Be Prepared to Speak (Erik Beltran) Honorable Mention 2011

How to Host A Card Catalog Contest

The Fresno City College Library and its Friends group started its cARTalog contest in 2006. Inspired by the San Francisco Main Library’s three-story display of old card catalog cards turned into art and the University of Iowa’s Adopt-a-Card project that ended in 2006, adding the contest element is what sets Fresno apart.
To get the word out to prospective entrants, the library goes straight to the source, reaching art and poetry students through their classes and instructors through an emailed flyer, as well as making presentations at the Interclub Council and Anime club, and posting notices on campus kiosks and of course, in the library.
