Role of the indexer
An index: its essential purpose
- Re-organize the information in the book to turn it inside out. The information has to be broken down, and re-assumbled into its component parts.
- The Table-of-Contnets is a summary of the author's plan of his book. An index is the indexer's plan of the information given by the author.
