General Experience

I am a trained and chartered law librarian working for an academic legal library. I have been indexing for just over 10 years and have completed about 100 books. I enjoy the variety of work and subjects that indexing can bring and have worked for commercial publishers on traditional back-of-the-book indexes but have also indexed  journals, multi-volume archive material and blog posts. Generally I focus on material in the humanities and social sciences.

Subjects

Legal Tabling

I have undertaken many legal tabling assignments, usually alongside indexing the text and usually for Pearsons. As a legal librarian I understand the importance of accurate citations and references.

Law (All Areas)

I am happy to undertake general legal books and legal textbooks but not advanced practitioners’ texts. I have a great deal of experience with legal history texts, minutes and diaries.

Social Sciences (All Areas)

My six A levels and bachelor’s degree cover most of the social sciences so I have a broad understanding of the discipline and enjoy texts that intersect.

Mythology/Folklore

I have an interest in folklore and can tap into a specialist source of knowledge.

Other skills

Proofreading
I trained as a proof-reader a few years ago to enhance my work as an indexer - it was not my intention to take on work specifically as a proof-reader. It is useful for an indexer to understand proof-reading marks, how to read methodically and carefully and the implications of formatting changes in the final stage of the production process.

Recent indexes include

Prichard, Michael,

Gonville and Caius College: The statutes of the founders

, Boydell Press, Nov 17
Elliott & Quinn,

Criminal Law

, Pearson, Mar 16

Clients Include

Pearsons, Florence Productions, Penguin/Random House, Honourable Society of Inner Temple.
