Indexes were created to facilitate the discovery of labour union-related newspaper clippings. Two sets of handwritten index cards (12.7 cm x 7.6 cm) are arranged by "newspapers" and "subjects related to labour union" respectively. Newspaper articles relevant to the subject matters would be recorded in individual card.
This exhibit shows an example of index cards, with a newspaper clipping index entry of subject related to labour union, "纜車工潮" and relevant newspaper clippings from "Hwa Shang Pao" published during January adn February 1946.
索引與工運剪報資料配合使用，以助查閱報章內容。索引咭用12.7 cm x 7.6 cm目錄咭，按「報章來源」及「工運相關主題」分別製作兩組合共超過800張索引咭。目錄咭上紀錄了與特定主題相關的報章、出版日期及簡單說明。
