Any Extra Parts?

If your book also contains pictures or figures that provide information or enhance the text in some way, then include a “List of Illustrations” directly after the Table of Contents. The same goes if your book includes several key tables that provide information or text enhancement - this should also follow the Table of Contents

If many Abbreviations are used or if a Chronology is required, then a listing is very useful. Its location should always be given in the Table of Contents, and it should be placed after the Introduction, just before the start of the Body of the book.

If your main text requires Notes to amplify or document certain passages throughout the text, (as is often the case with academic works) arrange the notes by Chapter order in a Notes Section. This should be placed between the Appendix and the Glossary.

If your book is a multiauthor work where only the volume editor’s name appears on the title page; a List of Contributors should be placed in the back matter, between the Bibliography and the Index.

Finally, it is quite common to see a list or lists of Resources at the end of a book, before the back cover, of course. Readers often want to buy products or join organizations in the field in which you've written. A list of organizations and associations, manufacturers and distributors, Websites and other resources can be invaluable to your readers.
