The Value of an Index

An index is an investment:  

  • An index adds value to a book; it becomes a research tool which is useful to readers.  
  • An index will make a book accessible:  it anticipates the needs of readers, ensuring that they will find what they are looking for and it will enable them to explore other themes.  
  • At a glance an index allows for a brief overview of the content to encourage readers to buy the book.
  • A professionally prepared index will enhance the use and value of a book.
