A well-crafted index
A well-crafted index complements the text to which it belongs.
Most importantly, an index points users to information in the text that they seek.
Within an index, you’ll find broader concepts and narrower topics to cover the varying needs of users.
To enhance usability, multiple access points to topics are given, together with cross-references (See and See also) to assist with navigation.
Despite advances in computing, no software package can automatically produce a well-crafted index.
It takes the human element to achieve this, and crafting quality indexes is where Master Indexing comes to the fore.
