Caveat statement on the Directory itself:
“This Directory leads to a self-selected list of indexers who are members of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the American Society for Indexing and are willing to be contacted about freelance indexing projects. The PNW Chapter encourages each publisher to discuss projects with indexers and confirm appropriate qualifications.”

Style Sheet for the Online Directory

  • Main entry will use business name with a cross-reference from personal name to business name. Place personal name in full on second line of entry. If no business name exists, place name in first line of entry.
  • No cross-reference will be used when business name starts with the indexer’s last name.
  • For addresses with post office boxes in the US, use “PO” (not “P.O.”) for consistency.
  • Spell out street, drive, road, court, etc. Include zip code.
  • Canadian addresses may use the format as follows:
    Business Name
    street address (optional)
    city, province, postal code
    (….) 345-1180
    Name, Your. See Company Name
    (if applicable)
  • There are no alternative phone numbers or email addresses. Choose one. No fax numbers, please. If the client wishes to fax you, they will ask for that number.
  • Updating an entry may be done at any time.
  • Non-members will be deleted annually, with warning, each Spring.
  • In the Specialties and Skills Directory, entries will be listed under the business name only, with a link to the indexer contact information in the alphabetic listings. When reviewing an entry, always check that the links to each part of the Directory work.
