Indexes in eBooks

ASI’s Digital Trends Task Force has often suggested that indexers ask their clients about eBook versions of the books they are working on. Will they have indexes, if not, why not?

In an effort to help provide indexers some responses to what publishers or editors may say, this Executive Summary is being provided. It attempts to answer the usual reasons given why indexes aren’t needed in eBooks.

Please feel free to pass this summary and the accompanying study onto your clients and ask them to forward it internally to whoever may benefit. This is grass roots advocacy! ASI is working on more organizational advocacy but the advocacy can start with you!
