The Information Bank Abstracts file contains summaries of stories selected,
abstracted and indexed by The New York Times Company. The abstracts provide
coverage of national and international news, business, economic, social and
political issues and are written to match the who, what, where, when and why of
the original stories. A special feature of this file is the inclusion of index
terms. Subject, organization, name and geographic descriptors are attached to
each abstract as well as standard notations for graphics and types of materials,
(e.g., editorial, interview, letter).
The New York Times Company selects materials that will satisfy the current
affairs, research and management information needs of a broad spectrum of users.
Since virtually all news and editorial materials from The New York Times are
selected, other journals are used to provide additional insights,
interpretations and points of view. Duplication of factual material is
minimized. This means that many articles are selected from publications whose
coverage is quite different from that of The Times while fewer articles are
selected from publications whose coverage closely duplicates that of The Times.
