ABSTRACT
The article discusses the development of IndDoc, a back-of-the-book indexing guide which utilizes natural language processing. The program is being developed by Laboratiore d'Informatique de Paris Nord in France. The authors address the concerns of indexers regarding automatic subject indexing programs, and assert that IndDoc is different in that it uses linguistic and terminological tools to compile recommended terms for inclusion in an index. An explanation of how the program works is provided along with illustrations.
