Indexing biographies: lives do bring their problems

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1989), 16, (3), 168–172.

Abstract

Considers biography as a particular genre to which standard indexing practices, developed for structured bodies of technical knowledge, are not always applicable. Indexes to biographies raise particular problems of length of text, selection and terminology of entries, arrangement and number of subheadings, extended continuity, layout, and need for discretion, and may require unique, specific solutions.
