Vendor Name Chadwyck-Healey / ProQuest

Coverage 1895-1976

Special Usage Notes

Prior to 1925, these index entries do not include SuDoc numbers. Users will need to use the printed Monthly Catalog (GP 3.8:) in the SuDoc Reference collection to locate the SuDoc number for individual items. There are also numerous transcription errors in the keyed entries, so users should verify the accuracy of SuDoc numbers by checking the actual scanned image in this database if they are having difficulty locating material on the shelves. As a Regional Depository, the UK Libraries will own most of these titles, especially those that have a black dot beside the item number in the scanned image.
