Indexing archives for access

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2005), 24, (4), 200–202.

Abstract

Archival records now in the custody of Australian State and Federal Archives were created by public servants in the normal course of their work. For the most part it was not envisaged that these records would continue to be used by future researchers. This paper looks at how indexing is a means of opening up greater access to archival records, and the challenges that archival indexing poses to both archives and libraries, and private individuals and genealogical societies who publish indexes for researchers.
