The cards are documents in rectangular card format, which are used to record and compile data extracted from bibliographic or non-bibliographic sources about an investigation. Among the types of files is the hemerographic file.
What is a hemerographic record?
Hemerographic refers to documents that contain information related to publications such as magazines, bulletins or newspapers.
Therefore, a hemerographic record is used in the registration of information that identifies a publication article.
These tokens are white cardstock cards, some with lines, measuring 12.5 x 7.5 cm. They can also be done digitally in Office suite programs.
They should not be confused with a newspaper library . The latter is a kind of compilation of clippings that are stored according to the date and type of publication. It is the magazine, newspaper or bulletin sheet in question in which the article can be clearly read and which often plays a historical role . In many cases the sheet containing the article is cut out and pasted on a sheet of paper and some annotation is added.

These tokens are easy to create. These are the main data they should contain:
- Article title
