I am developing a lab manual and want to integrate a glossary into it while developing it. What is the best way to do that? I understand the glossary is in the back matter, and that is created when the book is compiled. But should you compile a book that is being developed? Also, I thought you could compile a book by the icon next to PDF/readability, but I am not seeing it.
My real question is what is the best practice for integrating a glossary while building a lab manual? I was thinking I could just copy an existing one, and then modify the table to fit my needs. So my second question is where is a good general chemistry glossary?
