The Indexer Collections

The Indexer is a rich source of information for indexers and those interested in indexing. Some articles that particularly catch the attention are much cited to the point of being classics. Others, perhaps just as significant, don’t get cited so often and can get lost to sight. The Collections bring together articles carefully selected to be of particular relevance to a specific audience, to be readily accessible and which will be turned to again and again. Articles undergo little editorial intervention other than what is required for conversion to an ebook and the occasional editorial note to draw attention to developments of which the reader should be aware.
