Indexes are created to help people find information. Indexers work hard to find the best words to describe the topics covered by their books and collections. This book is an aid to decision making in indexing. It aims to look at decisions that indexers have to make everyday. Many book indexers are created by professional indexers, but others are made by authors and editors. Indexing is part of their job for librarians, museum curators, technical writers and subject specialists. The book provides something of value for all indexers.
