I have always been fascinated by the idea of indexing. Thanks (I
think) to the person who sent the link to the indexer's society. I saw
the note that most folks now get into indexing through a sort of
apprenticeship.

So... does anyone here do indexing professionally? And if so would you
be interested in sharing out some of your work and breaking someone
new into the field?


I don't do professional indexing but our
documentation department puts a high value
on it. Our style guide has a chapter on
indexing, duplicated in our third-party
generic version (READ ME FIRST) that has been
complimented by a professional indexer on
Amazon. You might want to take a look at it
for some tips.
