It was published last month by Information Today, Inc. This is Hedden’s first commercial book. A smaller book for the American Society of Indexers was published three years ago. She has been working as an indexer and taxonomist for many years for various companies and on her own. She starts a new position as taxonomy manager at First Wind in Boston next week. ∆
