Special usage notes:

Indexing for FBIS materials is available in paper through 1992 in the Young Reference Commons Library of Congress classification collection. To locate a call number for the index for the world region in which you are interested, do a title search in InfoKat, the Libraries' online catalog, for "Daily report" and scan the list for the region you need.

For items located via this index, the text is available in SuDoc fiche (PrEx 7.10:) through July 1996 and on SuDoc CD (PrEx 7.10/3:) July 1996 to the present. Ask for the SuDoc fiche at the Periodicals Desk on the second floor of Young Library (east wing). Ask for the SuDoc CD at the Reference Commons Desk on the second floor of Young Library (north wing).

The fiche is arranged by the acronyms for the regions of the world, then by date. The indexes also refer to an accession number. This accession number does appear at the end of the SuDoc number, but it serves the same purpose: keeping fiche in order by date.

Full-text of the SUB-SAHARAN and SOUTH ASIA regions is available electronically through Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports: Africa (Sub-Saharan) and South Asia, 1974 - 1996; you can search this index and then search for the resulting items in the full-text product or search the full-text product directly. Note, however, that the full-text product appears to cover all countries; our subscription, however, will only provide results for the Sub-Saharan African and South Asia regions.
