Good grief! It appears that the guides I've been using aren't made any
longer, either. They were Avery Index Card Guides: a 4x6 manila card
with a one-third-cut yellow plastic tab with a heavy paper insert, and I
could get them cheap from my office supply store. I went to the Avery
website, but there's nothing like that or what you're describing,
I did find some self-adhesive plastic tabs with inserts in my office
supplier's catalog. I also found "blank self-tab card file guides"
there; they come in buff-color, so the tab could be colored with a
highlighter before you write on it. I guess I'll have to go to one of
those options when I run out of my supply of the old ones.
There are also some "self-tab" ones in the library supply companies'
archival supplies catalogs, but they're about twice the price of the
office supply place, because they're acid-free.
I guess hardly anyone other than libraries is maintaining actual card
files any more!!

Subject: [SERIALST] Microfiche divider guides
We are in need of more divider guides for our microfiche collection and
I am would like to match our current ones if possible. However, my
search of standard library supply vendors has been unsuccessful. What
we are looking for are 4 1/2 inches by 6 inches dividers. They are
gold-colored, plastic (Mylar?), and have a full-cut, clear insertable
tab across the top. Can anyone help me locate a supplier for these fiche
