The Card Index System

The card index system; its principles, uses, operation, and component parts is a 1911 book by one R. B. Byles on the advantages of card indexes for businesses. It's an interesting read, if you are interested in the history of this technology.

The Introduction starts with the claim that "[r]oughly speaking, the world is divided into two classes: those who use the Card Index System and those who do not." The short book is meant to convince those who do not use the system to change their minds.
