Whether the field of indexing is "growing," I don't know, but
everybody I've ever heard from who has had a book professionally
indexed sings the praises of this craft and the people who do it.
There's a professional society for them, but I have no further
information -- hence the crosspost to bit.listserv.techwr-l, with
followups back here to misc.writing.
