The article offers ideas and guidelines on indexing biblical and related materials. The guidelines offered are said to be in standard practice and are the result of historical development. According to the author, biblical and related materials require special indexing procedures to ensure that their usual conventions are followed. Biblical materials indexing can either be done by creating a citations index of scriptural and non-scriptural passages, or the creation of a subject index concerned with the Bible and related materials. Examples or biblical indexing are also presented.
