The focus for the third National Indexing Day is a half-day conference for editors commissioning indexes, or for other interested publishing professionals, on how indexers work and how they can add value to any non-fiction book. Following a welcome from our honorary president, Sam Leith, a series of presentations will focus on current indexing practices, how to evaluate good and bad indexes, and digital developments regarding embedded and linked indexes for ebooks. There will be an ‘ask the indexers’ Q&A panel session and break times for publishers and indexers to meet and mingle. The event will provide a useful opportunity for indexers and publishers to learn from each other so that together we can create better indexes and make non-fiction books more valuable and saleable. The provisional programme is here
