ABSTRACT
The author discusses her work in indexing particularly in the book "Joyce's Misbelief." She relates that Professor Roy Gottfried asked her to index "Joyce's Misbelief," published in 2000. She found that a previous owner of "Joyce's iritis and the irritated text: the dis-lexic Ulysses," published in 1995, wrote both marginal annotations and additions to the index. She said that some of the owner's comments were not indexable. One of her aims in indexing is to give an item multiple locations within the index.
