I am not sure when you say index if you mean searching or browsing.
The following assumes that your author metadata is stored as dc.Creator.
If not, just use the appropriate metadata instead.
In a format statement, [dc.Creator] will display the first one, and
[sibling:dc.Creator] will display all of them.
There is more information about elements that can be used in format
http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_format_the_output of your_collection
For an Author browsing list, you may want to use 'AZCompactList
-metadata dc.Creator' - this will group documents together under common
authors, so you can browse by author, and then go to all the books that
that author wrote.
I hope this helps.
