What I can do for you

I take great pride in creating quality indexes and will:


Use your terminology accurately to guide readers efficiently to your ideas and information

Anticipate the needs of your readers with terms they are likely to use when searching your text

Present the significant concepts of your text with index terms for both literal and implied meanings

Consistently and rigorously gather substantive information related to each term to ensure comprehensive coverage

Winnow out insignificant occurrences of a term so that your readers' time will not be wasted

Organize entries using meaningful headings and subheadings that gather together related information

Formulate headings and subheadings to avoid long strings of undifferentiated locators (page numbers)

Create cross references to increase the depth and breadth of your readers' searches

Ensure that all aspects of the index are accurate

Apply style decisions carefully and consistently.
