On the longest and hottest day of the year around 70 indexers assembled at St Anne’s College, Oxford, for the Society of Indexers diamond anniversary conference – Facets of indexing. A mixture of lectures, workshops and seminars ensured that there was something to interest everyone, whether they were long-established indexers or only just beginning their new careers.

Our conference was followed on the next day by the Book Index conference at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, organised by Dr Dennis Duncan of the Oxford Centre for the Study of the Book. A further social media story of the event can be found here.
