Scottish tartans An indexing challenge

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2000), 22, (2), 69–71.

Abstract

Tartans, from very modest beginnings, have become a real growth industry, with huge commercial implications - over 100 new or unrecorded ones are added to the list each year. That list (already including 2700 entries) is the Register of All Publicly Known Tartans. Crucial to the success of the tartan industry is that each tartan be unique and correctly attributed. This article tells of the Register’s efforts to ensure that this is so, and the role effective indexing (still in the early stages of development) has to play.
