5013 Indexing Presentation

  1. 1. What is indexing? Indexing is a system used to represent information from a document so that those conducting searches can retrieve the information easily. “ An index can be viewed as an alphabetized list of items that direct the searcher to further information.” 1
  2. 2. Indexing can be seen as a funnel. The funnel takes the information from the documents and comprises it into neat alphabetized lists that facilitate a searcher in retrieving the information . 2
  3. 3. Types of Indexing Activities Intellectual and Mechanical
  4. 4. Intellectual The intellectual part of indexing refers to the creation of controlled vocabulary, keywords or natural language used to create a retrieval system.
  5. 5. Mechanical Computers perform the mechanical activities, which are to alphabetize and format index entries.
  6. 6. Types of Indexing Automatic & Automated
  7. 7. What is Automatic Indexing? Automatic indexing occurs when computers do both the mechanical and intellectual parts of indexing.
  8. 8. Automatic Indexing Information <ul><li>Also known as machine indexing </li></ul><ul><li>Uses algorithms, keywords and controlled vocabulary to create indexes </li></ul><ul><li>Solves inconsistency and high cost problems associated with manual indexing </li></ul><ul><li>Computers can index large amounts of information </li></ul><ul><li>When computers deal with the intellectual part of indexing they can not evaluate the information like humans can </li></ul>
  9. 9. What is Automated Indexing? Automated indexing is when computers are used for the mechanical operations and humans deal with the intellectual portion.
  10. 10. Automated Indexing Information <ul><li>Computers are used for the tedious mechanical tasks so that humans don’t have to perform them </li></ul><ul><li>Humans can concentrate on the intellectual porting and analyze the information </li></ul><ul><li>Humans can combine and coordinate terms, cross-reference, link headings, and indicate relationships between terms which facilitate searches . 3 </li></ul>
