Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (The)

Planning (and preserving) your indexing legacy

Abstract

This article has been developed from talks given by Frances S. Lennie at ASI, ANZSI, and SI conferences during 2015. The catalyst was a presentation by Judith Cannon and Jenny Wood (‘Empty chair: succession planning for indexers’) at the ANZSI ACT/NSW regional conference in August 2014. The adage that indexers never die but simply fade away – literally or metaphorically – begs the question about what happens to our ongoing indexes (revision, serial, and cumulative) and the potential impact on clients. A career based on closely built relationships need not be finite: with some forethought it can be extended indefinitely. This article looks at ways to pass the baton gracefully to your successor with minimum disruption to the indexing and publication process.
