Web & Electronic Indexing SIG, a Special Interest Group of the American Society for Indexing

The Web & Electronic Indexing SIG (Special Interest Group) promotes the human indexing of Web sites, HTML and XML documents and Content Management Systems as well as Word and PDF electronic documents, online help, databases and eBooks using software tools.

It seeks to foster closer ties with the ASI Digital Trends Task Force (ASI DTTF) which concentrates on eBook indexing (DTTF Volunteers 2011) and seeks to link up with tools developers to include indexes.

It also seeks to foster closer ties with the Periodical and Database Indexing SIG and Taxonomies and Controlled Vocabularies SIG of ASI.

Its first objective is to serve the professional interests of indexers who seek to apply their skills in traditional human indexing to the nontraditional Web medium. This includes the writing of alphabetical (A-Z) indexes for individual Web sites, intranets, online periodicals, and collections of multiple Web sites. It also includes metadata keyword tagging of Web pages.

Its second objective is to inform the Web design and development community of the tools and resources for creating Web site indexes and the advantages of human-created indexes.

The Web & Electronic Indexing SIG is an affiliate of the American Society for Indexing, but serves Web indexers and Web indexing worldwide and members of affiliated societies can become free members.
