Description

This two-day symposium takes a timely opportunity to consider how the index - the foremost finding aid of the physical book - shaped reading and scholarly method over the last 800 years. 

'I for my part venerate the inventor of Indexes, [...] that unknown labourer in literature who first laid open the nerves and arteries of a book.'

–Isaac Disraeli, Literary Miscellanies
