Appendix F1: Cards



To provide UNK faculty and students with access to flash-card type study materials.

Adminstrator of the Collection:

The Curriculum Librarian, Calvin T. Ryan Library, Lower Level, (308) 865-8276

History of the Collection:

Much of the collection was not cataloged when the library adopted its present OPAC. In 2011, the collection was weeded and the remaining items cataloged into the OPAC.

Estimate of Holdings:

Approximately 20 card collections.


Items are not purchased for this collection. Recently acquired card sets (like the majority of the gifts from SuperDuper Publications) have been added to the Game Collection.


Flashcards only become obsolete when the data is no longer accurate or the items become worn. As noted above, the collection was weeded in 2011 to remove such items. Much of the collection was previously uncataloged (prior to 2011 when the entire remaining collection was cataloged), so use statistics don't exist. It is planned to move part of the collection to the math manipulative collection in the near term.


English is the primary language of the collection.


Most of the materials in this collection are older. Newer card format items have been added to the Games Collection.
