We don’t have indexes for The Brandon Sun or some issues of The Winnipeg Free Press. This means that the only way to find articles in these newspapers is to know the dates when the articles appeared. There is no easy way to find articles in the newspapers on a given subject.

The Canadian Index can be found on the tables in the Reference area. The New York Times index can be found on the Reference Shelves at AI21.N452.
