  • ProQuest has integrated the New York Times Index (1851-1993) with The New York Times (1851-2005) so searches now have the benefits of the New York Times’ own Index for more precise searching.
  • The New York Times Index was first published in 1913 as a quarterly edition for libraries, universities, and other newspapers. The Index transformed The Times into the “newspaper of record” It made the newspaper a databank that could be searched.In 2001 The New York Times printed an editorial about The Index, “Dusting Off the Search Engine” which included the vision of The Index’s found, Adolph Ochs.
  • Before online databases researchers had to consult print indexes to access newspaper articles. Researchers would look in the index to identify articles around their topic of interest then go to the microfilm to access the article.
  • Similar to The Library of Congress Subject Headings the language used by the Times shifted to reflect the contemporary language. For example: “African American” would not have been used in 1900, “Computer” did not exist 100 years ago
  • An example highlighted keyword terms in the print index – Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt
  • Search Person: Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt to find articles about her
  • Article 3 is the same article as listed in the print index
  • With a click researchers can go from the search results to the article image or full page image.In the abstract you can see this was a front page article, researchers can also click through to other articles about Mrs. Roosevelt or Theodore Roosevelt Jr.From the full page image you can see what other news made the front page. There is a very interesting article about Bernard Shaw and a conflict he was having with a Librarian.
  • Additional search categories are available: Company/Organization, Creative Work, Location, Person, and Subject. These new categories are indicated with an *
  • Searching Index categories provides more precise search results. The Abstracts are enhanced to include additional information (next slide)
  • Index Summary provides more information about the article and can provide historical information through the vocabulary and treatment of the subject.Topic Headings – vocabulary of the time, click through to articles categorized under that same topic heading.Find more documents like this – Use the Index terms to search for similar articles
  • Click the Topics tab to access Topics browse.Topics browse was released in September 2009. Researchers can search across over 3 million Index terms for us the topic categories to browse topics.
  • Browsing topics researchers can click through to related articles, and find related topics for exploration
  • Topics include the Index entry and links to the related articlesWhen applicable, additional topics are suggested to narrow a search
