This article presents information on articles featured in the October 1975 issue of The Indexer. The article Indexing LISA by Tom Edwards referred to techniques of chain indexing, and bold lead terms. Alan Gilchrist wrote of the role of thesauri in mechanized systems, concluding with some observations about the need for deeper thinking about concept formation and relationships, and more imaginative use of computers. On the other hand, V. C. Findlay had examined the index to the book Ancient Mysteries Described Especially the English Miracle Plays by William Hone.
