Thread Name: Indexing: Ballad Index 6.7 Released
Subject: RE: Ballad Index 6.7 Released
Nice work, Bob. My favorite way to use the Ballad index is to use the short contents: Then I use CTRL-F to find a distinctive word or phrase from the song title. The Ballad Index contents page includes cross-references to alternate titles of songs, so you're likely to get what you want even if you don't have the exact title (that's a problem with the Digital Tradition title index).

For years, I have used the Ballad Index Bibliography as a buying guide for books for my own library. Books are so much more valuable if they're included in the Ballad Index, because you can find what you're looking for.
