Printed Periodical Indexes

We still have the old printed journal indexes which are useful for earlier time periods. For example, if you are looking for public reaction to Pearl Harbor, check Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature for 1941-1942.  These indexes are now on the 4th floor of the Robert R. Muntz Library in the periodicals room.
