Fred Leise, ICI-Certified Indexer
As an ICI-Certified Indexer, I have provided high quality indexes for over twenty years in a wide variety of fields including scholarly works in international relations, music theory and history, East Asian culture and politics, as well as cookbooks, technical manuals and college textbooks.
One author recently commented: “Fred’s work seems masterful. I regularly thought, ‘What a great way of listing that.’ ‘So helpful for researchers.’ ”
I often deal with highly complex topics, as well as those needing extensive analysis, producing user-friendly indexes on budget and on time. My work has been recognized by ASI’s H. W. Wilson Award Committee the only time that a shortlist for the award has ever been announced.
My knowledge of indexing has been enhanced by serving for over 10 years as an indexing instructor, both for the University of California, Berkeley Extension Division online indexing course and for ASI’s pre-conference workshop for new indexers.
