OK - now that Karyn has done a great job on those explanations where I could
not articulate, here's how I use reference index as a way to group
If you want to find all references dealing with "smoking" and "california",
then you can just do boolean search on those key words.
However, what if for a given reason, you want references on "smoking" and
"california" AND references on "lung disease" and "Minnesota"? You could do
two searches to find them. You could do one search, add the keyword
"S.C.L.M." (or whatever) to those references, then do the other search and
add the keyword. Then, later, you can search for "S.C.L.M.".
I see reference index as an easy way to do the latter. You do the first
search, and then create a reference index (SCLM), then add the references to
it. You do the second search, then add to the reference index.
I wonder how others do it?
