What is the DNI?

  • DNI covers every aspect of indexing in the field of print and digital media – book and journal indexing in particular, but also web site and database indexes.
  • DNI aims to act as a gathering-point for all topics relevant to indexing and is open to everyone with a serious interest in professional indexing.
 

Purpose of DNI

  • Publicity: promoting awareness of professional indexing – both among the general public and in publishing companies and commercial companies
