Indexing: Manuals, Books, Reports, Web Sites

The index is considered the most important feature in both hardware and software manuals.

(PC Computing 1991)

The ocean flows of online information are all streaming together, and the access tools are becoming absolutely critical. If you don't index it, it doesn't exist. It's out there but you can't find it, so it might as well not be there.

Barbara Quint, ASI San Diego Conference, 1994

What is an index?

An index is an arrangement of entries in systematic format designed to enable the user to locate information in a document. The process of creating an index is called indexing, and a person who does it is called an indexer. Indexing cannot be reduced to a set of steps that can be followed! It is not a mechanical process. Indexing books is a form of writing. Like other types of writing, it is a mixture of art and craft, judgment and selection. With practice and experience, indexers develop their own style as do other writers.
