Catalogue & Index Issue 192: indexing

From the editorial – Catalogue and Index: Issue 192.

Welcome to issue 192 of Catalogue and Index which is devoted to the
topic of indexing. The term “indexing” can have different meanings, as
indexing takes place in many different ways and formats. So, we are
delighted that this issue gives a taste of the different ways indexing is
used in various parts of the information professions. We have
discussions about Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) and
FAST, which may be the ways many of us encounter indexing in
everyday cataloguing life. However, the issue also contains articles
about keywords in abstracting and indexing databases, subject indexing
in repositories, and back-of-the-book indexing. We hear from those who
do indexing and lead developments in indexing, as well as from those
who research indexing. Above all, this issue shows the variety and
vibrancy of indexes, indexing and indexers.
