Title
¬The art of indexing and some fallacies of its automation
Source
Logos. 3(1992) no.3, S.69-76
Year
1992
Abstract
Reviews the history of indexing, which began with the rise of the universities in the 13th century, before the invention of printing. Describes the different skills needed for indexing books, periodicals and databases. States the belief that the quest for fully automatic indexing is a futile endeavour; machine-generated indexes need the services of human post-editors if they are to be useful and acceptable
