The Society of Bead Researchers is a non-profit corporation, 501(c)(3), founded in 1981 to foster research on beads of all materials
and periods, and to expedite the dissemination of the resultant knowledge. The society publishes a semi-annual newsletter,
The Bead Forum. Contents of the newsletter include current research news, requests for information, responses to queries,
listings of recent publications, conference and symposia announcements, and brief articles on various aspects of bead research. Both
historic and prehistoric subject materials are welcome. For more information on how to submit articles or subjects for coverage, see
Information for Authors.
THE BEAD FORUM INDEX: Numbers 1-59 (1982-2011)
Since the first issue appeared in 1982, The Bead Forum has provided information about various aspects of bead research and SBR
activities. Much of the material, especially the articles and news items, is still relevant to researchers and Society officers, but
frequently difficult to find without leafing through most or all of the issues. This index is intended to alleviate this problem and
facilitate the flow of information.
The index is divided into two sections: an author index and a subject index. The former is not all-inclusive, listing only those
items that have research or reference potential. Items such as society news, treasurer's and president's reports, announcements,
requests for information and recent publications have generally not been included unless they contain material which is unique. The
subject index is not exhaustive by any means either, but still will allow the user to locate a wide range of subject matter.
In the author index, the numbers following each entry indicate the issue number followed by the page numbers. In the subject index,
the issue number is included, but only the number of the first page follows.
