Abstract: This new INDEX presents information published in women's periodicals in Canada from Sept.1 to Dec. 1, 1985, as well as items selected from a list of academic and popular journals over approximately the same time period. It is a keyword index of subjects only and depends upon meaningful titles rather than a reading of material. Reproductions of contents pages of indexed periodicals precede the main text. There is a list of periodicals indexed but their addresses and subscription rates are not given.
Because it is computer-generated, the index can be produced very quickly. Each article is listed in the index many times, so that the author and almost all owrds in the title and otehr descriptive material are cnetred once on the page. The authors note that "it should function as an intermediate index, before annotated and other more detailed indexes are available." It will be complied each Fall.
This should be a useful tool for researchers, lecturers, students, people working with women's groupos and anyone interested in women's studies. No subscription rate is given but further details may be obtained from CRAIW/ICREF TITLED WORD INDEX PLANNING COMMITTEE, c/o Women's Program, Faculty of Edmonton, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, T6G 2G4.
