      Many digital news archive systems in Taiwan are based on format description, not subject indexing. This requires users to know their background or the terminologies used, in order to retrieve information from these archives. This paper discusses how the original elements were indexed from various perspectives in Chinese digitized news archives. It also makes recommendations to improve the industry, including strengthening the process, connection, and description of news contents, organization, and management. This will enable cross-system retrieval and in-depth resource integration among systems.
