Not to mention that those multiple volumes were so huge that just lifting them on and off the shelves was a major effort!
Sometimes the "good ole days" weren't really that good!

Not to mention the days when dinosaurs roamed the earth, the closest thing to "Medline" was the multiple annual volumes of Index Medicus, which came dark red, blue and green flavors ... supplemented (by the well off libraries) with proof sheets from Current Contents and the key word in context volumes of "Science Citation Index"

I'm a much older dog (there are still a few of us around), as I was at NLM training just a little while before the database became available to libraries (1970).  I still refer to the database as Medline.
