The index is designed to help the user find the subject described in the appropriate policy. The index is also cross-referenced to state law as is each table of contents.
The index also includes many terms not used in the classification system. These "extras" appear in italic type and are cross-referenced to official descriptors. Some of these topics are synonyms, e.g., Administrative Regulations, see "Administrative Rules." Other classifications are included to show where topics might be placed into the system by local classifiers, e.g., Jury Duty, see "Leaves and Absences."
In addition, major descriptors appear in several places in the index. This again is to facilitate the user's search for correct term placement in the system.
