Few Nigerian libraries index daily and weekly newspapers. The qualified and unqualified staff who do the indexing use various entry formats and structures, provide several access points and also maintain several catalogues. The number of subject headings to be assigned per item is determined by policy in most of the libraries. Subject headings are determined with or without subject heading lists. To achieve a uniform indexing system, the National Library of Nigeria should formulate indexing standards, compile and publish indexing terms, index newspapers and publish subject indexes.
