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.

Catalogue & Index Issue 190

The theme of the latest issue is research: what it is, how to do it, what resources to use, how to promote what you have done, and examples of it.

Research is as popular as it has ever been and we hope through this issue to answer some of your questions or inspire you to engage with research even more.
