I take pleasure in forwarding a message from NFAIS concerning a report of
interest to many of you. This message has been posted to several lists.
Please forgive the duplication.


The National Federation of Abstracting and Information Services
(NFAIS) announces the publication of  "Computer Support to
Indexing," written by Gail M. Hodge and Jessica L. Milstead.
Based on extensive interviews with twenty-nine database
producers, this report describes the current environment of
database indexing, the use of indexing with metadata, plus the
surrounding issues, policies, and developments since the advent of
the Web.

"Computer Support to Indexing" provides an overview of the
general design of existing indexing systems, aids to the clerical
aspects of indexing, support to intellectual decisions, quality
control, management, and system implementation.  It also
discusses factors affecting the future of computer support to
indexing.  This latest reports updates the 1992 NFAIS publication,
"Automated Support to Indexing" by Gail Hodge.

About the authors...
Gail Hodge has been involved in the design of production systems
for abstracting and indexing services since 1978.  As Senior
Project Manager for Information International Associates, Inc., she
has primary responsibility for project management and consulting
in the areas of database production, metadata and bibliographic
record analysis, and the application of technology to cataloging
and indexing.

Jessica Milstead is Principal of The JELEM Company, which since
1986 has been offering consulting services in thesaurus and index
development, including machine-indexing.  She works with a
variety of clients, including database producers, Web content
developers, and government agencies, to aid in development of
user-oriented, cost-effective products.

"Computer Support to Indexing" is must-reading for secondary
publishers, primary publishers, and intermediaries, who seek to
provide subject access to databases, and for consultants who
support this effort.

Founded in 1958, the National Federation of Abstracting and
Information Services is a membership organization of more than
50 leading information producers and providers.  Its purpose is to
serve the information community through education, research, and
