United States Newspaper Program. List of Intended Audience Terms for 655 Genre Field.
Wisconsin State Historical Society, Madison.
The United States Newspaper Program (USNP) is a national, cooperative effort to locate, catalog, and preserve on microfilm newspapers published in the United States and its territories since the seventeenth century. This list of intended-audience terms was initially developed by the USNP staff at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, but soon grew to include terms submitted by other national repository projects and later by state projects. The goal in producing the list was to create a thesaurus for the USNP that would allow users of the database to access specialty newspapers by their particular characteristic. The terms on the list were derived from a variety of sources familiar to staff at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin from their earlier bibliographic work. Terms are listed alphabetically under three major subject headings: (1) Ethnic Terms; (2) Religious Terms; and (3) Other Terms. (THC)
