V9 2006 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 26, June 25, 2006, Article 23

ON INDEXING PERIODICALS

Last week Kerry Rodgers wrote that "editors NEVER index their own
creations.  Some dedicated soul pops out of the woodwork..."

Martin Purdy writes: "Well, curiously, I decided about six months
ago that it was time we had an updated Index to the New Zealand
Numismatic Journal, so I started doing just that in my spare time.
Most of the rest of my spare time is taken up being Editor of the
NZNJ.  (And curiously again, the last Index that was published as
a separate volume was prepared by the then current editor back in
1966 ...)

I take Kerry's point, though - someone has to have the idea and
it's usually taken individually (I only realised I had better tell
someone else in the RNSNZ a couple of months into the project)."
