Margaret de Boer Indexing Services

 English

I have a broad base of knowledge in a wide variety of subject matter with over 25 years combined experience in television news cataloguing, newspaper website database indexing, thesaurus development, proofreading online content, and book indexing. Specialty subjects include Indigenous content (including two volumes of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report), economics, environmental studies, political science, and psychology. I create accurate indexes which reflect the contents of the subject matter in order to point readers on direct pathways to necessary  information. Through referrals and repeat business I have indexed projects both  large and small.  The final product is delivered on time to your specification.

Formal education: B.A., B.Ed,  Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL 1 and 2), and  Indexing for Books, Journals, and Reports (Ryerson)
