The Index Fossils book has not been updated since its first publication date.  The Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology established by R.C. Moore in the 1950s and updated since then is now the gold standard as far as reference books are concerned.

The Index Fossils book is valuable to me for starting a search on a genus or species of a fossil, giving a good starting point for Google searches and further digging in the literature.
