Quite simple. You are returning a fixed string with the value "title" for each row in the database where your call number is the one you entered.

You should do something like:
    PreparedStatement selectCurrentValue = databaseConnection.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM cardCatalog WHERE callNumber = ?");
    selectCurrentValue.setString(1, callNumber.getText());
    ResultSet rs = selectCurrentValue.executeQuery();
     String title = null;
        title = rs.getString(title);
     else title = "";
     String currentValue = title;
no need for Vectors here, your code is overly complicated as you'll only ever want a single result (and expect no more than 1).
