Indexer’s Discussion Group (IDG)

This Groups.io list is a group discussion list for professional indexers and anyone interested in indexing books, journals, and other print and electronic media, and the business of indexing. Visit groups.io/g/idg to join.

Index-L discussion group

Join via the subscription page, or send an email message to lyris@listserv.unc.edu. The entire message should be:

subscribe index-l YourName

(leave the subject line blank, and do not include a signature or any other text).

INDEX-L was created to promote good indexing practice by providing a forum for aspiring and professional indexers to share information and ideas relating to all aspects of index preparation. Topics for discussion can include various types of index structures such as indexes for books, periodicals, online text, databases, or hypermedia. Participants include but are not limited to members of professional indexers organizations (ASI, NFIAS), librarians, library school faculty, and editors.

Isc-l (members only)

Discussion list for ISC/SCI members. Discussions are about both indexing and Society matters like conferences and meetings. To join, simply go to Isc-l and follow the instructions. To post a message to the list, send e-mail to isc-l@list.web.net (note that the address ends with the lowercase letter “L” and not the number one).

Index Peer Reviewers

Indexers volunteer to review each other’s edited indexes. Very often indexers have little or no continuing opportunity for feedback on their indexes. A peer review provides an opportunity for this feedback. By reviewing and being reviewed, we increase our awareness of good indexing technique and gain valuable feedback on our skills. To subscribe, send an email to index-peer-review+subscribe@groups.io.
