This index was published semi-annually as a cumulative index from 1957 – 1970. Many of the entries correspond to the entries listed in the previous indexes and their arrangement is similar.
The catalog cards are arranged in this index by JPRS number.

Within these sections, they are classed geographically – China and Asia, Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union and International Developments.
This bibliography is accessed differently over four different time periods of publication:
