Why would I use an index anyway? Finding business names and history, people's names and history are sometimes not easy to locate in a full text database and it makes more sense to look in a keyword abstract collection first. An index may go back to pre-electronic production of newspapers and magazines, and of course, sometimes the paper version of the newspaper or journal may no longer be available.
