I recently dug up an old paper about indexing that I never published. It’s pretty brief, but I think the main argument still stands, so I’ve shared it on CUNY Academic Works.

Maybe of interest if you’re interested in indexing, or the politics of software. Here are the details:

Title: Automation, Abstraction and Building It Ourselves
Link: https://academicworks.cuny.edu/kb_pubs/219/
Abstract: This paper argues that indexers should work collaboratively to build software tools that support our profession. As technology automates the procedural aspects of our work, we need to respond by building tools that support the conceptual labor of indexing.
