Today's Lesson


  • A card catalog is a collection of cards arranged in alphabetical order in which information about each book, CD, etc. at a library is written on a separate card.

    An online catalog is an electronic database you access via the Internet, with information about each book, CD, etc. at a library.
  • card catalog とは、図書館が所蔵する本やCDなどについての情報を個別のカードに記入し、それをアルファベット順に配列したものです。

    online catalog は、インターネットを通じてアクセスされる図書館の本、CDなどについての電子データベースです。
