Anatomy of a Medical School
A good scholarly work will have an index. If it does not, it is the first fault targeted by reviewers. Index-making can be a tedious task or a perverse pleasure, and is done by the author or a freelance professional, who in the past may not have been credited for work done. But times are changing: in her new book on the history of the Medical School at the University of Otago, Dr Dorothy Page thanks Andrew Parsloe, her indexer, as well as other members of the OUP team.
