I knew what they were 20 years ago....  This is what the main Indexer society I know of recommends:  https://www.asindexing.org/reference-shelf/software/<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.asindexing.org%2Freference-shelf%2Fsoftware%2F&data=02%7C01%7Cjennifer.wondracek%40untdallas.edu%7C22e14d3326eb4c236c8208d7533620f1%7C70de199207c6480fa318a1afcba03983%7C0%7C0%7C637069364262633219&sdata=ot6A6nJFlfvFuo%2BxVqZoPZEYjAiLcox%2BMX%2BxmZfZOWk%3D&reserved=0>.  Cindex<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.indexres.com%2Fbuy-standard-edition&data=02%7C01%7Cjennifer.wondracek%40untdallas.edu%7C22e14d3326eb4c236c8208d7533620f1%7C70de199207c6480fa318a1afcba03983%7C0%7C0%7C637069364262633219&sdata=xl2ZR20s%2FvClVkxdQy0aVHvlsv1Wnc5g2aEwLuDNdYk%3D&reserved=0> was the standard back then, and I think it still is.  It's about $550.

This PDF Indexer<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pdfindexgenerator.com%2F&data=02%7C01%7Cjennifer.wondracek%40untdallas.edu%7C22e14d3326eb4c236c8208d7533620f1%7C70de199207c6480fa318a1afcba03983%7C0%7C0%7C637069364262643213&sdata=4u8awub3k0RQcHIOO4plxTcuTRGwV1A2Rkv2X47z7pU%3D&reserved=0> might be useful for your needs, but I know nothing about how reliable it is. It's about $70.

Also, creating a good index is hard if you don't have training, not to mention time-consuming. Even now, software can only do so much.  Hiring an indexer is often the best option (and helps librarians!).  I took a whole class in many years ago, and that just scratched the surface.

I hope this helps.

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a good indexing tool for a book? One of our professors is asking for one.

I know MS Word can index, but I think the faculty member’s manuscript is already in PDF format.

Thanks!
