Abstract

Described is a process of augmenting indexes to items to improve the information retrieval characteristics of the index. The indexer achieves the improvement by modifying the index according to a specified set of rules. The specified set of rules constitute a system of logic that will make conclusions about the indexed item based upon clues contained within the index material of the item.
