Abstract
Reports results of a week long sample observation of card catalogue consultation by library users. Subsequent questioning of users about the purposes for which they consulted the catalogue revealed that the classified catalogue is not used as all and the author and title catalogue are consulted to the maximum. It is also found that 80% of the consultations of card catalogue are to locate documents, 10% is to make comprehensive searches for references on a topic and rest for miscellaneous purposes
