Creation and Usage Notes

This was one of the potential sources I built in for name of the land of Oz (another comes from Inha). The real name, of course, came from a library catalogue L. Frank Baum saw as he was reading one of his Oz stories aloud at a public library. It separated cards according to the first letter of the title or author, and the last of the major subsections was O through Z.
