The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1999), 21, (4), 174–179.

Abstract

Discusses some of the findings of a British-Library-sponsored investigation of indexes to children’s information books with particular reference to the importance of book indexes, the presentation of indexes, the indexing process including the cost of producing the index, the standards of children’s indexes and the features of indexes which appeal to and confuse children. Some of the recommendations of the final report are given, including the recommendation that all children’s information books should contain indexes and that these indexes should be compiled by professional indexers.
