Can You Recommend a Good Book on Indexing? Yes, I can - this one. Weinberg's in-depth reviews focus on key considerations in the organization and retrieval of organization and present crisp analyses of the strengths and weaknesses of publications in the field. Reading this book would be of more benefit to aspiring and practicing indexers than many a textbook on the topic. Just as importantly, you'd know which books on indexing, cataloguing and classification are worth consulting, and which are to be avoided.
