Overview

The PAIS Index database comprises a retrospective conversion of the PAIS Annual Cumulated Bulletin, Volumes 1-62, published 1915-1976. At completion of this conversion, the PAIS Index contains over 1.23 million records.

The PAIS Index database contains references to monographs, periodical articles, notes and announcements, and analytics. The original historical subject headings have been retained in the file.

Since its establishment in 1914, PAIS (Public Affairs Information Service) has chronicled issues in the public debate through highly selective coverage of a wide variety of sources. The PAIS Index provides historical perspective on many of the 20th century's public and social policies.
