Abstract

Caroline Diepeveen reports on the making of the Wheatley Medal-winning index to the Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic world (EJIW), the problems that had to be resolved along the way, and the pleasures and the promise for the future of indexer teamworking. She takes a look at the online version of the index, and finally offers thoughts on why indexers must embrace the new technology publishers are introducing to ease their production process.
