The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

It ain’t just what you say but the way that you say it: indexing a DVD

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2009), 27, (4), 173–175.

Abstract

Indexing the content of a DVD of a lecture series for an accompanying book-commentary raises several novel issues. Time codes have to be clearly referenced, entry headings have to reflect the way information is stored in auditory memory, and the rhetoric of lecturing has to be taken into account. The task is made more difficult by a general uncertainty over how a DVD index will actually be used. A warning is given about the way film-editing and subtitling procedures can adversely affect the indexer.
