"Indexing done Write"

"I certainly think the best book in the world would owe the most to a good index, and the worst book, if it had but a single good thought in it, might be kept alive by it..." (  HORACE BINNEY TO S. AUSTIN ALIBONE)


Why Hire An Indexer?

Have you ever tried finding information in a book without an index? Better yet, have you ever tried finding information in a book with an index and still couldn’t find what you need? If you answered yes to both questions, you know why a properly done index is important.

 An indexer helps pull information, even obscure bits, into a cohesive whole so that the reader can easily locate what is needed.

What is an Index?

An index, simply put is an alphabetically arranged list of words, names and phrases with locators to where the subject matter being discussed can be found. 

In a truer sense, an index can be much more and takes a specialized approach to managing information to guide readers to needed information.
