This index supplements a similar index of published reports (Cobb, 1973) currently being processed for formal publication. Inasmuch as many open-file reports are preliminary and eventually superseded by final published reports, it is inappropriate to include references to open-file reports in a permanent index. As most preliminary reports are of immediate, although temporary, value, it is desirable that references to them be compiled and made available for general use through the medium of open-file release. This index is designed to fill that need.
