Indexing Advice ("From A to Zafran")
The column “From A to Zafran” appears in Key Words, the quarterly newsletter of the American Society for Indexing (ASI). It offers Enid's personal preferences in indexing style and approach which she has developed from her work in the profession of indexing. Enid is including these articles on the Indexing Partners website to give guidance to other (especially newer) indexers as well as to those who teach indexing or hire indexers. All of the columns are copyright by Enid Zafran, and excerpts may only be reprinted with permission.
