WHAT IS AN INDEX?

A printed, hardcopy index provides a list of standards that were current in a given year.

Search by:  

  • keyword/subject in the alphabetical index
  • standard number in the numerical list

The index entry for a particular standard may also include: 

  • a synopsis or summary
  • references to amendments or revisions.  

Older Indexes may be cumulative and include listings for previously published standards.

Indexes

Indexes often contain extra information about amendments and superseded standards.

The Library's Catalogue contains many records for American, British and New Zealand indexes. Each time these publications change their respective title, a new catalogue record will be created.
