OZBIB: a Linguistic Bibliography of Aboriginal Australia and the Torres Strait Islands, compiled by Lois Carrington and Geraldine Triffitt, was originally published by Pacific Linguistics, Australian National University in 1999. Its basis was the combining of a number of published bibliographies and the library catalogue of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS). Additional entries were sorted by contacting authors directly, sending them copies of their entries and asking for additional items or amendments. This personal touch, facilitated by emails and personal websites, was used even more in the supplement to OZBIB prepared in 2005–06 for the AUSTLANG database which AIATSIS will mount on its website. OZBIB will provide the bibliographical structure behind the language database. Mounting OZBIB on the Internet provides a case study for describing hopythetical copyright issues.

More about this publication?
  • The Indexer is published by the Society of Indexers on behalf of all the indexing societies, seeks to cover the full range of subjects, from articles at the cutting edge of new techniques to contributions discussing in a practical way the new tools available to indexers at all points in the technical spectrum or exploring the history of indexing. Its extensive reviews section covers both printed and electronic material, including websites and hardware and software of interest to the indexer, while 'Indexes Reviewed' highlights some of the best (and worst) examples of indexing in action. And, in 'Around the World', it keeps readers up to date with what is going on across the international indexing community. First published in 1958 on a twice-yearly basis, it moved in 2008 to a quarterly publication.
