Dakota Indexing
Back-of-the-Book Indexing for Authors and Publishers
The Chicago Manual of Style states:

"Every serious book of non-fiction should have an index to achieve its maximum usefulness."

That being the case, most non-fiction books should have an index. However, if the indexer isn’t familiar with the subject matter and doesn’t have a solid understanding of indexing principles, the index will not meet the needs of the reader and the book will not fulfill its true potential. My background and experience in business, industry, and academia, make Dakota Indexing uniquely qualified to provide indexes in a wide range of subject specialties.

Using SKY Indexing Software and electronic submission, my goal is to meet or beat your deadline using the motto:

"Done Right - On Time"

Samples of my work or a list of titles indexed will be provided upon request.


Dakota Indexing believes that rates are best determined after discussing the subject matter as well as your desired index specifications and deadline. Please contact me so we can discuss your project
