Embedded Indexing in FrameMaker    (PDF)

Embedded indexing is the process of creating index entries electronically in a document’s files. Although desktop publishing packages are not the best tools for indexing, they can be used to create effective embedded indexes. For technical documents that will be updated frequently or will go online, technical communicators can create embedded indexes that will help their audience find information quickly and efficiently.

New Directions in Technical Indexing   (PDF)

The age-old art of indexing will continue to be essential for the quick and accurate retrieval of information, no matter what the medium might be. Advances in technology will not replace the need for well-prepared indexes, only how indexes are presented. Information on indexing for newer forms of communication is scattered and not fully developed. This session will bring together what is known to give attendees a better understanding of the trends, issues, concerns, and requirements that are involved in “newage” indexing.
