Indexers compile organized lists, called indexes, that help people locate information in a text or body of work. Indexes are like "road maps" that help users find desired information. Just as a map allows travelers to select the most direct route to a destination, indexes should provide users with a basis for selecting relevant information and screening out that which is unwanted.
