CopyEdit - Index - Author supplied

  • Prepare your book file in a recent version of Microsoft Word or WordPerfect using its Index feature.
  • After your corrections have been done Xlibris can provide you with a paper galley of your book to be used as a reference for creating the index. You can create the Index, including final page numbers, as a separate text file and submit it on a PC formatted disk to Xlibris. The index is placed at the end of the book and we will send you a confirmation galley.
