An Index, not a concordance

Concordance is a word I've always like the sound of - it's fun to say. A concordance is a list of words or phrases and where they appear and the new W&M A-Z on www.wm.edu won't be one.

The new W&M A-Z will be an index of sites at the College. According to the American Society for Indexing, an index is "a systematic arrangement of entries designed to enable users to locate information in a document." Now that's more like it - we'll have one of those.
