These Indexes were prepared by Janet Hine, B.A., A.L.A.A., of the State Library of New South Wales. Janet Hine was the honorary Indexer of Archives and Manuscripts from 1969 to 1978, and was elected as an Honorary Life Member of the Australian Society of Archivists in 1978 for her efforts.
From the ASA Bulletin (No.18 Feb 1978):
Those who are acquainted with the Indexes will be aware of what thorough and painstakingly produced works of reference they are. The then Editor of Archives and Manuscripts, Mr R.C.Sharman, said when announcing the first Index in 1970, "It seems to me that archivists and librarians have a responsibility to see that their professional journals are provided with an index", while on other occasions he added that when there is so little information available on a subject such as archives in Australia, an analytical index is of great value. Miss Hine has devoted many, many hours to this important work, and the archival profession in Australia is in her debt.
The site search engine can also be used to locate authors, articles and subjects published in Archives and Manuscripts between 1955 and 2011. The published index is particularly useful for cross referencing.
