The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

Vive la différence! The survival of the softest

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1993), 18, (4), 231–236.

Abstract

Discusses the differences between indexing printed and electronic texts, and between technical and ‘soft’ types, and suggests that regulations and standards now adopted for indexing meet the requirements of electronic information retrieval and technical texts, but not of traditional, extra-disciplinary book indexing. The unorthodox, individual index may have much merit.
