Analytical Subject-Indexes to Selected Volumes of the Code of Federal Regulations

  • Recommendation number: 69-4
  • Adopted on: October 22, 1969
  • Publication Date: October 22, 1969

Currently the Code of Federal Regulations is updated annually by the issuance of some 112 revised books. Many of these books are self-indexing. The usefulness of some books may be greatly impaired by the lack of an analytical subject index.

Recommendation

1. Each agency contributing substantially to the CFR should review its materials and (a) determine what books should include an analytical subject index, and (b) arrange for the preparation and publication of requisite indexes.

2. The Office of the Federal Register should review proffered indexes and arrange for the publication of those that appear to be professionally adequate.
