Indexing is when you pick descriptive terms to help organize comics into meaningful groups. This works much like tagging, but we have created a bunch of terms that we think will be really useful and fun for comics. We have also organized these terms to make browsing easy. Use this guide to help find the best terms, then in mlll.org you can apply the terms. When indexing, we suggest having both this guide and mlll.org open at the same time.
To index a comic:
Step 1: Choose a comic from the MLLL collection. In mlll.org catalog, once you have logged in, find the comic’s record and click EDIT or create a new record.
Step 2: Pick one of the big categories below. You can start anywhere.
Step 3: Find the best term or terms. In mlll.org, check the box next to term.
Step 4: Continue through each of the other categories.
Step 5: When you have picked good terms for each of these categories, sit back and celebrate. You have successfully indexed a comic. Yay!
