National Indexing Day 2024 will take place on Thursday 28th March. We will be celebrating online with #indexday. In addition we will be hosting a half day in-person workshop for professionals in the publishing industry who would like to improve their understanding of the indexing process. It will be held at the Publishers Association in London and the session will run twice so that people can attend at a time that suits. Following a welcome from our honorary president, Sam Leith, a series of presentations by professional indexers will cover the value of indexes, how best to work with an indexer and the advantages of indexing software used by indexers. There will also be an interactive practical session for participants to try live indexing and time for questions and discussion. Places for this event are strictly limited, further details on this and the booking form are here.
More details on the background of the society and National Indexing Day can be found in our press release.
