AVAILABILITY:  Only one copy of this index exists. It must be used in the Indianapolis Newspapers, Inc. Library.
SCOPE OF INDEX:  All current events news as reported in the INI newspapers.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  This is a combination index and clipping file. A newspaper article is clipped. It is placed into a 4x6 envelope and the single most important subject heading is typed onto the envelope. Also typed on the envelope is a lengthy abstract of the article, along with the date, page, column, section, type of material, byline and edition. If the article covers more than one subject, then a 4x6 "cross reference" card is typed for each additional subject. This card consists of the subject heading, a shortened version of the abstract on the envelope and the same citation information. In addition, a SEE note tells the user under which subject heading the 4x6 envelope with the enclosed clipping will be found. Thus, after performing a search, the user has the option of getting the clipping from the envelope or writing down the citations for use with the original newspaper. The index is arranged in alphabetical order by subject, with both 4x6 cards and envelopes interfiled. Only 1970-Current envelopes and cards are in paper form. The 1912-1969 cards and envelopes have been reproduced on 538 rolls of 16mm microfilm.
SIZE OF INDEX:  About 4000 entries per month are added to the index.
