This article describes the rationale and methods for reindexing
all 17 years of the NSW Public Health Bulletin.
The Bulletin is a valuable resource for researchers, however
over time the subject index had become cumbersome with
long lists of articles under broad headings. To facilitate
searching the index was revised to include narrower terms,
sub-headed terms, more cross-references and new terms
reflecting changes in public health practice. Regular reports
and surveys now have their own subject headings, and
greater recognition has been given to public health history
and organisations. The index appears annually in printed
form. The full cumulated index is available online and in
2007 will be updated with each issue.
