Summary/Abstract: The author analyses index cards which form a part of the legacy of Professor Stanisław Pietraszka, the founder of cultural studies in Wrocław. To describe the material not researched to date, she uses the category of apparatus, taken from the media archaeology. It helps to discern within the index cards a medium, typical for the analogue humanities, that is (although not only) the “archive technology”, as well as the presentation of the ways this contraption works, by balancing between the creative and idiosyncratic element and quite rigorous rules of formalisation and organisation.
