Absolute Indexing - Siusan Moffat


About me:

I have wide interests and a varied background that includes food, art, film studies/archiving, and old technology/media.  My specialty is social justice.


While I am skilled in many different realms I prefer to focus on indexing and am active in ISC committees, including The Inclusion, Diversity and Equity committee (TIDE). My prices are fair and I work with both authors and presses to give a thorough and concise index. As a UC Berkeley indexing course graduate, I continue professional development in indexing through webinars, seminars and conventions.

I would really like to index the niche subjects of old Hollywood and vintage radio shows. I’m also looking to do more cookbooks!


Some of the books I’ve indexed:

Going Public: The Survivor’s Journey from Grief to Action, by Julie Macfarlane, Between the Lines.

Gentrifier, by John Joe Schlichtman, Jason Patch and Marc Lamont Hill, University of Toronto Press.
