Database Indexing

Master Indexing can provide database indexing for a range of materials. Records can be input into skeleton records (ie: a field structure with the basic bibliographic details of author, title and source already filled in), template records, or input from scratch depending on the requirements. Apart from providing keywords (subject terms) from a designated controlled vocabulary (thesaurus), and non-keyword terms (identifiers or non-thesaurus terms), abstracts can be written as well.

Materials, which can be indexed into a database, include:

  • Individual journal articles, either as loose papers or selected journal articles
  • Cover to cover indexing of journals
  • Conference proceedings, either individual papers or cover to cover
  • Books, or book chapters, and
  • Reports, particularly annual reports.

Master Indexing is familiar with a range of database software.
