Providing clear, concise, professional indexes to your specifications.



My Master's degrees in both Information Science and History provide me with essential skills in information organization and analysis. My experiences with library users constantly reinforce the importance of suitable indexes.  Time after time I see that when faced with an overwhelming amount of information, readers will often select materials based on the clarity of the index.  

Let me put my skills and experience to work for you.
