Specialized Indexes > Voice Index (student newspaper), 1963 – 1966

The Voice was the immediate predecessor to Notre Dame’s current student newspaper, the Observer. The entire run of this short-lived newspaper has been indexed.

This program searches the index for whatever words you indicate. It is not case-sensitive, and it will find the words you type regardless of the order in which they appear. If you type Theodore Martin Hesburgh it will also find records that say Hesburgh, Theodore Martin. But it makes more sense to put the less common name first and to omit the middle name, which the indexer might have omitted in making the index.

You can exclude records by placing a minus sign before any word except the first (with no space between the minus sign and the word you want to exclude). Sheed Fr -Sheedy will find Francis Sheed and Frank Sheed but not Fr Sheedy.

When you search for hyphenated words, you should substitute a space for the hyphen. Search for anti apartheid, not for anti-apartheid. If you truncate words, the program will find all records that have the letters you have included. If you type Sheed Fran it will find Francis Sheed, Frank Sheed and Frank Sheedy.
