If the library has electricity, you can run a computer, even if it isn't
hooked up to the net. You can transfer electronic catalogs to the computer
with a thumb drive, or a DVD, or even an external hard drive storage device
hooked up to the computer. You could have a regular schedule for updating
the catalogs.

Ancient net saying: never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon
full of tapes. More modern: sneakernet.
