How do you guys store and catalogue your lecture notes? Do they make binders that accommodate comb-bound books? :confused:

I use those magazine holders they sell at office supply stores. They work pretty well. I try to keep the lecture notes of various magicians together, but I do separate the letter-sized booklets, from the smaller ones. Otherwise the little ones tend to get buried.

I file them in a file cabinet. label a folder for each author.

I just throw them in a spare room, it's almost full now..

Seriously, mine are just piled horizontally on book shelves. Different themes, different piles. Other suggestions mentioned here sound better, but remember, out of sight, out of mind.

I suppose I should catalogue them, its just finding the time. Best for people to start doing that EARLY in magic.

I file mine chronologically - by the date and time then I throw them on the pile.........

But before I do that, I index them in a database by author, title, and subject, and any key words that jump out and might help me figure out later, if I already own it.

But like so many of my magic items, even if I find it in my index, all I generally know for sure is that .... "they are over there somewhere..."

I ..COOULD..include a location of the notes, etc, but we have been remodeling this house for 5 years, and I never know when I will have to pack it all and move it out of the way again so that plumbers, or electricians, or somebody else can "play through"...

Maybe this part shows my wife's attitude towards my magic, Hmmmm ....
