Indexing in and for Europe: a user’s perspective

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1992), 18, (2), 92–94.

Abstract

An overview and evaluation of indexes and indexing services that provide access to European Communities’ (EC) information sources. Argues that there is a need for more cross-references from natural phraseology to a harmonized controlled language; that this controlled vocabulary should be precise, comprehensible, and should not give rise to semantic dispute; and that the EC should provide the lead in European indexing generally. Concludes that the growth of English as a teaching medium in Europe will necessitate more provision of English publications, which in turn may afford opportunities for professional indexers.
