SCRIPTURE INDEX OF F.A.R.M.S. REPRINTS AND REPORTS COMPLETED
An index of all scriptures mentioned In regular F.A.R.M.S. reprints and reports is now available. Every scripture reference is individually listed, indexed, and briefly described. This index places thousands of details at your fingertips.
More than six months of indexing and computer entries by Les Campbell, Greg McMurdie, and Corey Chivers has culminated in the "Scripture Index of F.A.R.M.S. Reprints and Preliminary Reports, 1987" (CAM-87) What Gary Gillum's scripture index did with the Hugh Nibley archive, this project does for the rest of the F.A.R.M.S. materials. This index lists every scripture used in F.A.R.M.S. papers by book, chapter, and verse. The authors' names, catalog numbers, and page and footnote numbers are then listed, showing each place where the scripture is mentioned. A brief comment identifies the subject of individual scriptures and how each is used in the reports. To make the index easy to use, it is organized according to the subject categories in the F.A.R.M.S. catalog.
This index guides you readily to the insights that F.A.R.M.S. articles give to particular scriptures, to what researchers are saying about specific verses, and to which verses have received the most scholarly attention. "There has never been anything like this before in the field of Book of Mormon reference resources," says Gary Gillum, librarian at BYU's Harold B. Lee Library. "This project makes a major contribution to the field." This valuable research tool can be ordered on the attached form.
