Organizing Your Knowledge Documents

In today’s information economy, the most valuable resource is time. In publishing your work for other readers, it’s essential to help them get right to the information they need without wading through your entire document word for word. Using three tools will help you organize your work for others: putting a table of contents at the front of your documents, using cross-references liberally, and (if the document is distributed electronically) creating hyperlinks to take people directly to the appropriate section.

Creating Tables of Contents

A table of contents can be one of the best organizing principles for the casual reader.

Many want to get right to the section that interests them, or be able to tell from your contents what the flow of your logic is.
