Abstract:

Illustrative material in texts serves one of two purposes. In the first instance it is an important adjunct to the text, whereas in the second it is there just as padding or filler and can largely be ignored. This paper examines both scenarios and discusses how to handle photos, tables, graphs, figures, diagrams, etc. Do you only consider the captions of these various features or should the indexer provide more in-depth analysis? Further, what is the most useful way of referring to illustrative materials in the index, as well as in circumstances of unusual book design?

More about this publication?
  • The Indexer is published by the Society of Indexers on behalf of all the indexing societies, seeks to cover the full range of subjects, from articles at the cutting edge of new techniques to contributions discussing in a practical way the new tools available to indexers at all points in the technical spectrum or exploring the history of indexing. Its extensive reviews section covers both printed and electronic material, including websites and hardware and software of interest to the indexer, while 'Indexes Reviewed' highlights some of the best (and worst) examples of indexing in action. And, in 'Around the World', it keeps readers up to date with what is going on across the international indexing community. First published in 1958 on a twice-yearly basis, it moved in 2008 to a quarterly publication.
