Abstract
The activity of indexing has always had as its central goal the determination of the concepts in a document and the representation of those concepts in vocabulary terms that can be used in systems of document storage and retrieval. Traditionally, careful reading and careful term choice, relating each document to a larger terminological whole, have been the special techniques of the indexer. The involvement of users in term selection (such as in democratic indexing) has changed the assumption that professionals alone could do it best, and the revolution of user-based information posting on the internet has overwhelmed old models, and created challenges for information professionals. In this paper the author reflects on some indexing approaches as social styles, and suggests some new or expanded skills for professional indexers.
