The Decision Making Process
by Sherry L. Smith and Kari Kells
Here is a unique window into the decision-making process in indexing. Inside Indexing follows two talented indexers, Sherry Smith and Kari Kells, as they demonstrate, contrast, and analyze their independent approaches to the same text—Eben Fodor’s Better Not Bigger. The reader is able to look over their shoulders, sharing the challenges they encounter and the solutions they develop. An informative Introduction is followed by seven chapters that cover key considerations such as audience, metatopic, access routes, phrasing, and consistency. The closing chapter explains how the ideas presented in the book can be successfully applied to other indexes. This fascinating fly-on-the-wall view of the indexing process will be an important addition to the bookshelves of every library and indexer.
