Indexing & Abstracting Tools

For earlier material you must consult the paper Current Geographical Publications : Additions to the Research Catalogue of the American Geographical Society [Z6009.A5 Regenstein Second/Third-Floor Reading Room]. For still earlier material, back to the 19th century, see Research Catalogue of the American Geographical Society [Z6009.A505 Regenstein Second/Third-Floor Reading Room, plus various supplements at Z6009.A506]. All the American Geographical Society materials use a somewhat quirky indexing system, which is documented in the paper sources.
