Title
Indexes: a chapter from The Chicago manual of Style, 14th edition : a review
Source
Indexer. 19(1994) no.2, S.105-109
Year
1994
Abstract
The chapter on indexes in The Chicago Manual of Style serves as a standard for index format and as a self teaching tool for authors and novice indexers. Reviews the 14th ed. for logical sequence, accordance of the guidelines and rules with those of other manuals and authorities, and the quality of its index. It is found wanting in all these areas, but contains much useful information on the indexing process and book index format
