Thanks for the replies. I'll summarize the answers I received below. But
some people didn't understand my question:

- some documents include not only a table of contents, but a list of all
the figures and/or tables in the document, and what pages they're on. I
asked what to call such lists of figures (or tables of figures) and lists
of tables (or tables of tables)
- I was not asking whether or not to put them in. I'm in a tech writing
course now & practicing different document elements. I'm not at the point
yet of deciding what to actually include.

The answers I received:

1. *"list* of figures" and "*list* of tables". "Table of tables" is too
awkward.
- nevertheless, we still say *"table* of contents".
2. "reference tables"
3. Use "contents" or "contents lists" to refer to the TOC, list of
figures, and list of tables

Again, thanks
