‘A funny lot’: indexing and local history books

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2005), 24, (4), 184–185.

Abstract

The indexes of local history books are likely to be used by people researching specific interests. Unlike more general books, passing references to people, places and events often need to be indexed, perhaps under appropriate general headings. This article offers advice on anticipating the interests and technical knowledge of index users.
