This index is comparable with CSO 10, the main difference being that it is a large volume, the entries are sparse, and the alphabeting is consequently more perfect. The first two letters of the subject determine the place of entry, e.g., space was allotted to Ba, Bi, Bl, Br etc. There are, however, many anomalies in the application of this system and it is unwise to rely on it. Subject entries and cross-references are both used extensively. The register (CSO 12) must be consulted in conjunction with this index to locate files.
