Title
Indexers' reactions to PRECIS

Abstract
The background to the Liverpool Polytechnique study of indexer reaction to the PRECIS indexing system and the methodology of the study are described. Some of the findings are discussed, special attention being given to points which some indexers regarded as advantages and other as disadvantages; the alleged labour-intensiveness of PRECIS; the British Library and PRECIS; and the impact of PRECIS on the British library community. A thesaurus of terms used in the British Library PRECIS indexes is needed, and some consideration should be given to the possible simplifications of PRECIS or modification to suit the needs of different users. Feedback from users of PRECIS indexes is required
