AVAILABILITY:  This is a published index. It is published semi-monthly with an annual cumulation. Write for current prices. The New York Times index is available for public use in most public libraries in the United States.
SCOPE OF INDEX:  Encompasses the news and editorial matter of the final Late City Edition of the Times, the same edition that is microfilmed, including the Sunday supplementary sections and advertisements that are related to the news and likely to be of interest to users. Material is omitted only when it is of such transitory interest as to have no discernible research value. Whenever possible, entries are made under subject headings (e.g. AGRICULTURE, HOUSING, STEEL, etc.). Geographic (country) subject headings will usually be used for articles on the government, general defense, finance, economy, politics, and social conditions of that country. Names of persons and organizations are usually used in cross references ("see references") to a specific subject heading where activities of that group or person have been indexed. Entries are usually made under the most specific subject heading possible (e.g. material on the steel industry is under STEEL rather than METALS), except where the amount of material is too small or where it is more advantageous to collect related material under a broader heading.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  This is a printed book form index. Entries contain a brief abstract of the article, the month, day, page, and column. Portraits, illustrations, and maps are noted. The word "text" indicates that the test or transcript of official statements or documents is included in the article.
