“You have to know the past to understand the present.”

Carl Sagan

“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.”

Thomas Jefferson

“With the past, I have nothing to do, nor with the future. I live now.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The past is not dead. In fact, it’s not even past.”

William Faulkner

So, toward which statement do you most gravitate? There are many more quotes and wise sayings about the past, the present, and the future, and how they are, or are not, related to each other and to each sentient being. Maybe some of these make sense to you, maybe not. They all reflect quite different attitudes toward past, present, and future. But, however you feel about these sayings and their meanings, we do have a long-ago cataloging past (well before the 1800s and our current cataloging era), and our present is based on those who came before us, just as future catalogers and metadata librarians will have their present stemming from our time. I wanted to include this short (and very incomplete) bibliographic essay on the history of ancient cataloging and libraries so that readers could learn about, or recall from their library school days, the great ancient past of our traditions, philosophies, and important personages of cataloging and classification.
