Book Description

"A clear and concise guide to the essentials of indexing ... the perfect choice for a novice indexer, authors desiring to index their own work, or document specialists needing to index their organizations' materials. If you are considering indexing as a career, this handbook will help you make up your mind."
—Frances S. Lennie, Indexing Research, Theodore C. Hines Award Winner, and 2X ASI President

This fifth edition of Linda Fetters's popular Handbook of Indexing Techniques includes clear explanations of indexing techniques along with many helpful examples. In addition to its easy-to-follow "how-to" coverage, you'll find updated information about indexing seminars and training programs, professional organizations, and indexing standards. Chapter 8, "Electronic Documents," has been expanded to include basic coverage of embedded indexing, Cambridge University Press indexing, XML indexing, ebook indexing, web indexing, and taxonomies. And, for the first time, the book's bibliographic references—a rich source of suggestions for further reading—appear in two separate appendixes, one organized alphabetically and the other by topic.

Seems like there's a lot of good solid information for people getting started indexing, but if you've read Mulvany’s “Indexing Books,” there's not an awful lot new here. I got this book because I'm indexing a periodical journal, but the additional information provided here could be summed up as: it's going to be longer; it's going to be harder because there are multiple authors with varying terminology; the terminology may change over time.

That said, there is extensive coverage of newspaper indexing, as well as a good discussion on electronic indexing.
