Automatic book indexing systems are based on the generation of phrase struc- tures capable of reflecting text content. • Some approaches are given for the automatic construction of back-of-book indexes using a syntactic analysis of the available texts, followed by the identifica- tion of nominal constructions, the assign- ment of importance weights to the term phrases, and the choice of phrases as index- ing units.
