Determination and Analysis of Some Parameters Affecting the Subject Indexing Process.
Lufkin, Richard C.
This report describes a quantitative study of subject-indexing as it is being performed by catalogers who are developing an augmented catalog as part of Project Intrex. Learning curves for the average time taken to index technical documents on a per-page basis were derived for a group of indexers. The average indexing times per page were also calculated and compared under several criteria pertaining to the nature of the documents. (Author)
