A back-of-the-book Indexer, member of the American Society for Indexing, and a researcher who works within diverse communities, I completed a Masters degree in Education in 2010 with a focus on Society, Culture and Literacies. I have worked with the Dublin Core schema for electronic indexing, as well as with controlled vocabularies.
Recommendation from Dr. David Jardine (see sample index tab at top):
As to the index you sent, well, it is wonderful. As the author of this
text, reading this index was like reading a reminder of the text itself
and, frankly, it brought out more depth in the text than I thought was
there in the first place. Amazing! It is so satisfying to read an index
that was written by someone who not only read but understood the text itself. Congratulations on a job well done--clear, careful, detailed, and a pleasure.
