Proceedings of the Seminar on Freelance Indexing (2nd, Washington, D.C., January 13, 1979).
Tebo, Jay D., Ed.
Transcribed and edited from tape recordings and prepared papers, these proceedings present the topics covered in the four sessions of the Second Seminar on Freelance Indexing: (1) how to get started as an indexer--making contracts, setting up the office, billing and bookkeeping, reference tools, filing for trade-name, and indexing apprenticeship; (2) indexer economics--methods of charging for indexing services; (3) special indexing problems; and (4) indexer-publisher relations--what publishers expect from indexers, delayed payments and remedies for them, index costs vs. other production costs, working without payment, and reporting errors. Included is an organization profile of the American Society of Indexers and a directory of the conference attendees. Appendices provide a brief guide to freelance indexing by Cynthia Weber and a book-indexing bibliography compiled by Albert H. Rouslin. (Author/JD)
