Evoke: Words for Hire
Reno, Nevada 89502 United States
I bring my 15+ years of experience as an academic librarian to my indexing work. I am a specialist in how people (especially college students and researchers) look for information, which allows me to create particularly useful indexes.
My own academic background is in the history and anthropology of religion (in the ancient world and in the Americas), and as a librarian, I worked closely with scholars and students across the social sciences. My subject expertise is, therefore, broader than most. I regularly index scholarly books in political science, international relations, gender studies, communication studies, library and information sciences, environmental studies, American studies, Black history, education, economics, business, and history. I specialize in interdisciplinary works– particularly the intersections of these subjects.
Beyond my expertise in standard back-of-book indexing, I am expert with embedded indexing and index at least a dozen Cambridge University Press books each year.
In addition to my scholarly indexing, I enjoy indexing cookbooks and other culinary works. I particularly enjoy indexing vegetarian, global, dessert, and cocktail cookbooks.
When not indexing, I teach the Library Juice Academy Book Indexing course, I adjunct at my local university, and I provide developmental editing as well as copyediting services for the Organization of American Historians and for scholarly authors in the areas listed above.
