ABSTRACT
Christine Jacobs reflects on how ethical considerations affect the work of the indexer. What does 'ethics' mean? How does it affect the indexer's choice of what to index and how? What if the indexer finds the subject matter uncongenial or badly presented? How does the indexer remain alert to perspectives other than his or her own? How does one guard against bias and achieve neutrality of language? To whom does the indexer owe responsibility?
