Indexing is a form of description that looks to define concepts expressed in a document and to represent them according to a documental language. Some factors influence this process and can contribute to a more complete selection of terms that represent the document within an information system, which is previous knowledge about the subject of the document and the area where the professional is inserted. Another important factor to consider is the textual structure of documents that are indexed. Each document type has its own structure, but when the document in focus is the book, the textual structure analysis can be performed in order to facilitate the subject cataloging, because the professional who performs this procedure can get the terms in more appropriate spots. Thus, we seek to understand and investigate the indexer as a professional reader through the observation of their professional experiences acquired through the specific domain of university libraries, and the use of textual structure for the subject cataloging. To achieve this, an introspective technique for data collection, the Verbal Protocol, which is the manifestation of thoughts during the recording of any proceedings in this case, subject analysis, a procedure that leads to determination of issues will be applied. The results obtained through literature research and data collection during subject cataloging, will contribute to formulate a "Modelo de Leitura Documentária para indexação de livros científicos", methodology originated from the "Modelo de Leitura Documentária para indexação artigos científicos", from other researches in Documentary Reading area.
