Northwest Quarterly Magazine, Winter 2015 – Cover, Table of Contents

Source: The actual magazine. Rockford Public Library has past issues of the magazine that do not circulate but can be read in the library (usually the Local History Room).

Northwest Quarterly Magazine, Cabin Fever Winter 2015, Volume 12, Number 1

Page 17 above.   All issues of all magazines are not catalogued.  Northwest Quarterly contains “Local History” and indexing helps library staff find the issue with an article about Camp Grant or the article about Mendelssohn Club’s 100th Anniversary much faster for customers.  See also website:

Eventually every name in every article will be tagged so that it can be searched in this index.  The post is “published” before that all are entered; the procedure prevents loss of all the names that already have been entered.
