Newspaper indexing provides a gate to the first-hand history of doily events of our past and current times. Often, the primary users of a newspaper index are the journalists who work for that paper themselves. It is vital to prompt retrieval that standard sets of terms be used - via a simple controlled vocabulary, a taxonomy or thesaurus - within that newspaper's archive. Here, Meral AlakuÅŸ describes the issues surrounding newspaper indexing in general, with specific examples from Turkey's national newspaper, Cumhuriyet.
