Cary Playing Card Database

Please note that as of June 1, 2023, work is being done on the Cary Collection of Playing Cards to improve its
discoverability and accessibility. The Collection is unavailable while the work progresses, but as portions are
completed they will be made discoverable via Orbis and Quicksearch, the Yale Library catalogs.
The status of "unavailable" closed material is reflected in item records in Orbis and Quicksearch.
