Having been a professional librarian for 11 years, I learned the value of a great index. For more than 21 years, I have been providing thorough, accurate, on-time, back-of-the book indexes for a wide variety of clients. More than 1950 books and 185,000 pages later, I still get excited with each new project. I love the serendipity of indexing all types of books from textbooks about psychology or business, to scholarly books about religion or history, to trade books about sports, travel or hobbies.
