Telephone: (402) 553-4700
AVAILABILITY:  Only one copy of this book format index was produced. The index and the corresponding newspapers are available for public use in the University Library.
SCOPE OF INDEX:  This is a subject index of all news relevant to Nebraska and the Omaha/Council Bluffs metropolitan area. The metropolitan edition of the paper is indexed for Monday through Friday. The regular Saturday and Sunday editions are also indexed. Excluded from the index are: Editorials, Crime, Sports, Finance, Art, Entertainment, Society, and Weather (unless any of those articles are of unusual or exceptional news value). Syndicated columns, book reviews, movie reviews, and obituary notices (unless the person was locally important) are also omitted.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  Although the index was first compiled on 3x5 cards, it has been re-formatted onto 8½x11 inch typed pages (except for 1975 & 1976). Each index is divided into two separate sections. Entries for articles that relate to the Omaha/Council Bluffs area are arranged by subject in the OMAHA SECTION. Entries for articles that relate to Nebraska in general are arranged by subject in the NEBRASKA SECTION. Each typed page is in a two-column format with subject headings and cross references typed in capital letters. Entries include the headline and a citation (month, day, page, and column). Since each year's entries are in a separate volume, no year is included in the citation. Special letter codes are used to indicate sections in the Sunday edition.
SIZE OF INDEX:  1971 (72 pages); 1972 (74 pages); 1973 (128 pages); 1974 (368 pages). 1975 and 1976 are still in card form. Each of those years fills 3 card catalog drawers.
