Ten Principles for Creating Better Indexes - Margie Towery, Owner of Towery Indexing (Speaker biography)
Margie Towery, two-time Wilson Award winner, shared her tips for creating better indexes. Indexers need to keep a lot in mind as they work on a project, including: Accuracy (locators and information), Metatopic (structure and navigation), Consistency, Clarity (terminology and glosses), Conciseness, Reflexivity (digressions and language), Readability (alpha sort, parallel construction), Audience and access, Comprehensiveness (specificity and depth), and Common sense (digestion, natural language). Margie covered all of these topics and provided practical examples.
