Indexing


Indexing
  • I am a freelance indexer specializing in back-of-the-book indexing: textbooks, trade books, periodicals and reference books. I index to your specifications with attention to detail and at a reasonable rate.
  • I work from manuscripts submitted as PDF files.
  • Indexes are created in SKY and returned as Word or Rich Text Format files.
  • I will work on a quick deadline as my schedule permits.
