FORMAT OF INDEX:  The index is published in 8½x11 inch book format. A monthly index is about 80 pages and an annual cumulation about 550 pages. The index is divided into two sections, the SUBJECT INDEX and the BIOGRAPHICAL INDEX. Both sections are arranged in alphabetical order. The SUBJECT INDEX includes all of the general subjects, all of the government subjects and all corporate names. The BIOGRAPHICAL INDEX is limited to personal names. Each entry consists of a concise abstract of the article followed by the citation. The citation gives the code for the newspaper, plus the month, day, year and page where the article can be found. Special codes are used to indicate photographs, graphics, columns, features, editorials, letters to the editor, and especially newsworthy articles.
SIZE OF INDEX:  About 6000 entries per month are added to the index.
