2. How To Use The KWIC Index

2.1. Index Entries
An index entry contains at least four items of

information, and may contain as many as eight, e.g.,:

Occasionally both ends of a title will be truncated. When this condition occurs, the virgule will be omitted. Missing portions of a title can be found by locating in the Index one or more of the title's other key words.

2.2. Reading the KWIC Index

The title of each standard can be found under all the significant key words which it contains. These key words are arranged alphabetically down the center of each page together with their surrounding context. Each such permuted title is assigned only one line per key word entry in the Index; therefore, titles longer than one line have been cut by the computer. This truncation is indicated by a virgule () at the point where the title was cut.

All standards in this index should be ordered from the organizations listed in section 3.2., except standards with CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) as part of their designation, for example, USCG 46 CFR 146. This designation means that the standard was prepared by the U.S. Coast Guard, appears in Title 46, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 146, and is available in that Title for the price shown from the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. In some cases, it may be possible to obtain such standards directly from the responsible organization.
