THIS CARD CATALOGUE WAS PRODUCED AND USED BY STAFF AT THE LETHBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY. ON MAY 1, 2015 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED LINDA MCELRAVY, WHO WORKED AT THE LIBRARY’S MAIN BRANCH STARTING IN 1978, RETIRING FROM HER POSITION AS ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC SERVICES IN 2008. MCELRAVY EXPLAINED THE CATALOGUING PROCESS AND SUGGESTED THAT IT MAY HAVE BEEN HOUSED IN THE LIBRARY’S SENATOR BUCHANAN ROOM (A REFERENCE RESOURCE OF LOCAL HISTORIES AND GENEALOGIES) AT ONE TIME. MCELRAVY SAID: “WE USED [CARD CATALOGUES] PRIOR TO AUTOMATING OUR CATALOGUE WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE EARLY ‘80S… THERE ARE AT LEAST THREE INDEXES [INSIDE THIS SPECIFIC CATALOGUE]… WE USED TO CREATE CARD INDEXES FOR COLLECTIONS AND THINGS THAT YOU COULDN’T FIND… THROUGH NORMAL CATALOGUING PROCESSES. SO, THE FIRST ONE IS… THE SONG INDEX AND THAT WAS MADE UP OF ANALYTICS OF SHEET MUSIC MAGAZINE AND COLLECTIONS AND SONGS – ALL MUSIC AS OPPOSED TO JUST THE LYRICS. SO WE WOULD TAKE COLLECTIONS OF SONGS IN OUR LIBRARY COLLECTION, WE DIDN’T USE ANYTHING THAT WAS NOT AVAILABLE AT THE LETHBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY – SO IT WASN’T A GENERAL THING IT WAS SPECIFIC, A SPECIFIC TOOL TO OUR COLLECTION… IF SOMEONE WANTED A PARTICULAR PIECE OF MUSIC… WE WOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THAT HERE RATHER THAN PEOPLE STANDING AT THE SHELF, LEAFING THROUGH ALL OF THAT… [AT] THE OTHER END OF THE BANK OF CARDS IS THE PLAY INDEX AND THAT’S THE SAME IDEA – THERE WOULD BE ‘AUTHOR’, ‘PLAYWRIGHT’ AND ‘TITLE’ CARDS PUT IN FOR EACH OF THE PLAYS IN COLLECTIONS THAT WE HAD AT LPL. AND THE MIDDLE ONE WAS THE INDEX TO THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD – I THINK SOME OF IT GOES BACK TO ’99 AND BEFORE AND FOR THAT ONE THE STAFF WOULD CUT OUT ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND THEN THEY WOULD PUT SUBJECT HEADINGS ON THEM AND MAKE A CORRESPONDING CARD FOR THE CATALOGUE SO THAT THAT WOULD GIVE PEOPLE ACCESS TO THAT [FILE]...” MCELRAVY CONTINUED: “I THINK [THE AUTOMATION OF THE LIBRARY CATALOGUE] WAS IN THE MID ‘80S… [AFTER THAT PROCESS] I’M NOT SURE HOW OFTEN THEY USED [THE CARD CATALOGUES] ANYMORE… PERHAPS IT WAS JUST A QUESTION OF HANGING ON TO IT FOR THE SAKE OF HANGING ON TO IT.. I DON’T SUPPOSE REALLY FOR TOO LONG AFTER THAT IT WOULD [HAVE BEEN] USEFUL… [THE CARD CATALOGUE] REPRESENTS A LOT OF WORK… IT WAS EXPENSIVE TIME-WISE, IT WAS EXPENSIVE MATERIALS-WISE AND IT WAS EXPENSIVE SPACE-WISE… EVEN WITH THE DIGITIZED, AUTOMATED CATALOGUE, THOSE GENERIC ENTRIES DIDN’T NECESSARILY HAVE ANALYTICS… SO THAT’S WHY WE CONTINUED WITH THIS FOR A WHILE AND THEN EVENTUALLY IT JUST SEEMED TO BE NOT WORTH THE EFFORT TO DO IT… IT JUST SEEMED SAD TO ME THAT IT WAS ALMOST LIKE IT WASN’T RECOGNIZED BECAUSE IT WAS TOO OLD – IT HAD HAD ITS DAY BUT THERE’S NO PURPOSE FOR IT ANYMORE… I THINK THAT THIS CERTAINLY SERVED ITS PURPOSE FOR ITS TIME AND IT’S PART OF THE CONTEXT OF THE PERIOD… I OFTEN THINK TODAY WITH INTERNET AND WITH ALL THE ONLINE ACCESS THAT PEOPLE HAVE TO INFORMATION… WHEN YOU HAVE A QUESTION WHAT DO PEOPLE DO NOW? THEY PULL OUT THEIR PHONE, AND THEY GOOGLE, AND THEY GET THE ANSWER. WHEREAS, BEFORE ANY OF THIS HAPPENED THAT WAS WHAT THE LIBRARY DID, THAT WAS THE ROLE OF THE REFERENCE DEPARTMENT. THE LIBRARY IS THERE NOT JUST TO PROVIDE RECREATIONAL READING BUT TO PROVIDE INFORMATION. I’M NOT SAYING THEY’RE NOT DOING THAT ANYMORE, THEY ARE, IN A VERY MUCH MORE SOPHISTICATED WAY BUT THIS WAS ONE OF THE WAYS THAT WE HANDLED THE NEED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO PEOPLE.” THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF THE LETHBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM THE LIBRARY’S WEBSITE. IN 1911 A CITY BYLAW WAS PASSED FOR THE PROVISION OF A LOCAL LIBRARY TO BE ESTABLISHED, AND EIGHT YEARS LATER LETHBRIDGE’S FIRST LIBRARY SERVICE WAS OPERATED OUT OF TWO ROOMS IN THE YMCA BUILDING. IN 1922, THE CARNEGIE LIBRARY BUILDING IN GALT GARDENS OPENED, WITH AN EXTENSION ADDED IN 1951. IN 1956 A NORTH BRANCH WAS OPENED, AND A SOUTH BRANCH FOLLOWED IN 1974. THE LETHBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY MAIN BRANCH ON STAFFORD DRIVE SOUTH WAS COMPLETED IN 1974, WITH AN EXTENSION AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CHINOOK ARCH REGIONAL LIBRARY SYSTEM IN 1992. IN 1989 THE LIBRARY ADOPTED THE DYNIX AUTOMATED CATALOGUE SYSTEM, AND IN 1997 INTRODUCED PUBLIC INTERNET ACCESS COMPUTERS. IN 2010, THE CROSSINGS BRANCH OPENED IN WEST LETHBRIDGE.

ACCORDING TO THE DONOR PAT SASSA (NEE OKUTAKE) AT THE TIME OF DONATION, THE NURSES STARTED OUT WEARING BLUE DRESSES WITH BLACK SHOES AND STOCKINGS. SHE SAID, "THERE WAS ONLY ONE SHOE STORE IN LETHBRIDGE NAMED 'STERLING SHOES' THAT CARRIED THE 'CLINIC' BRAND SHOE WITH THE MILITARY HEEL. THEY WERE IN OUR STANDARDS, VERY EXPENSIVE, BUT THERE WERE NO OPTIONS. MOST OF ALL THE GALS WERE ABLE TO WEAR THE SAME SHOE FOR THE TWO YEARS; BUT MYSELF WITH VERY SWEATY FEET, WORE THROUGH FOUR PAIRS DUE TO THE PERSPIRATION ROTTING THE LEATHER... THE THIRD YEAR BROUGHT JOY AS WE WERE ALLOWED TO HAVE OUR BURNING CEREMONY OF OUR BLACK SHOES AND STOCKINGS. WE THEN DONNED WHITE SHOES AND STOCKINGS THAT DESIGNATED US THIRD YEAR STUDENTS OR BETTER KNOWN AS THE 'SENIOR STUDENTS.'" AFTER GRADUATION SASSA FINALLY GOT THESE FLAT DUTY SHOES. SHE SAID, "THE GRADUATES IMMEDIATELY CHANGED TO THE LOW HEELED 'CLINIC' SHOES FOR A 'CHANGE SAKE.' IT WAS MORE STYLISH AND A MOST WELCOMED CHANGE FOR OUR FEET. THE PRESSURE POINTS ON MY FEET HAD DEVELOPED CALLOUSES FROM WEARING THE SAME (HIGHER, CUBAN-HEELED) SHOE FOR THREE YEARS DAY AFTER DAY. I HAD FORMED A GANGLION ON TOP OF MY FOOT AND HAD VERY HARD CALLOUSES ON THE BALLS OF MY FEET." SEE P20090023001 FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING.

WITH EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES ARISING BOTH ON AND OFF THE BLOOD RESERVE MANY NATIVE PEOPLE REALIZED THE IMPORTANCE OF A HIGH SCHOOL AND POST SECONDARY EDUCATION TO GAIN EMPLOYMENT. RED CROW COMMUNITY COLLEGE WAS FOUNDED IN 1986, AND PLACED UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE BLOOD TRIBE EDUCATION COMMITTEE. IN ITS EARLY DEVELOPMENT, RCCC BEGAN AS AN ADULT EDUCATION CENTER, WHICH PROVIDED QUALITY EDUCATIONAL TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES TO STUDENTS OF THE BLOOD TRIBE. THE INITIAL PROGRAMS CONSISTED OF TWO HIGH SCHOOL COURSES, ONE U OF L COURSE, AND A STUDY SKILLS COMPONENT. IN MARCH OF 1995 RED CROW COLLEGE BECAME THE FIRST TRIBAL COLLEGE IN CANADA. THE RCCC BOARD OF GOVERNORS WAS OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED BY THE BLOOD TRIBE CHIEF AND COUNCIL. THIS SIGNIFIED THE TRANSFER OF GOVERNANCE FOR ADULT, POST-SECONDARY, CONTINUING, COMMUNITY, VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION FROM THE KAINAIWA BOARD OF EDUCATION TO THE RCCC BOARD OF GOVERNORS. WITHIN A THIRTEEN-YEAR SPAN, RCCC HAS EVOLVED INTO A COMPLETE POST-SECONDARY INSTITUTION, NOW OFFERING DIPLOMA AND DEGREE PROGRAMS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MOUNT ROYAL COLLEGE IN CALGARY AND THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE. ADULT UPGRADING, CONTINUING, AND COMMUNITY EDUCATION STILL REMAINS A CRITICAL FOCUS OF THE CURRICULUM. RCCC IS ALSO AFFILIATED WITH THE AMERICAN INDIAN HIGHER EDUCATION CONSORTIUM, AN ORGANIZATION THAT INVOLVES 30 TRIBALLY CONTROLLED COLLEGES IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA. RCCC HAS ALSO HELPED TO FOUND THE FIRST NATIONS ADULT AND HIGHER EDUCATION CONSORTIUM (1997) OF CANADA WITH SEVEN OTHER FIRST NATIONS INSTITUTIONS OF ADULT HIGHER EDUCATION. ARTIFACTS PURCHASED BY DONOR AT VARIOUS ANTIQUE SHOPS, GARAGE SALES, ETC. FOR THE PURPOSE OF DONATING TO THE MUSEUM. ARTIFACTS WERE PURCHASED FROM 1999 TO 2002 WHILE DONOR WAS DIRECTOR OF THE GALT MUSEUM. SEE PREVIOUS DONATIONS.
