User-Centered Indexing.
Fidel, Raya
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v45 n8 p572-75 Sep 1994
Distinguishes between document-oriented and user-oriented indexing and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of request-oriented and automated indexing. Request-oriented indexing is difficult to implement with human, a priori indexing. Automated indexing can be tailored to individual requests, but most research in this area focuses on global methods.
