National Indexing Day 30th March 2023 #IndexDay

We are back with an online event for #IndexDay 2023. We are holding an afternoon conference aimed at editors who commission indexes. There will be a series of presentations on current indexing practices, how to commission and work with indexers, and how to evaluate good and bad indexes. 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 draft programme is as follows:

12:50 Welcome from SI Honorary President Sam Leith and introduction from SI Chair Nicola King

13:00 Part 1

  • The case for indexes and human indexers
