Naomi Linzer has been sole proprietor of J. Naomi Linzer Indexing Services for over 20 years. She always meets deadlines, has competitive prices, and she is frequently available for last minute jobs. Additional information can be found on her website [linzerindexing.com/], including a long list of testimonials.
Many indexers have a rich and varied former life, and here is a sampling of hers.
After completing a B.A. in Anthropology at New York University, she took time off to travel in Europe, live in Israel on a kibbutz, study archaeology in Tel Aviv University, and work on Tel Ber Sheva excavations. Upon returning to the United States, Naomi completed an MA in Anthropology with Specialization in Conservation of Ethnographic Materials at the George Washington University in Washington D.C. and Smithsonian Institute. She then worked the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, as well as at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and at the Hebrew Union College Skirball Museum in textile conservation.
After another traveling stint overseas in Europe, the Middle East and East Africa, Naomi worked in customer service at Computerland Corporate headquarters, and served in the Peace Corps on the island of Granada in the Eastern Caribbean.
While working in the Humboldt County Public Library, she shelved a book on best jobs for the 90s, and discovered indexing. After completing the USDA Graduate School’s Basic Indexing course, she hung out her indexer shingle over 20 years ago. Now located on the Coastal Bend in south Texas, Naomi indexes both scholarly and trade books for many of the university and trade presses, and, these days, is usually hired directly by authors.
As a generalist Naomi enjoys indexing a wide variety of subjects from architecture to transmedia; Buddhism to Moroccan Islam; civil rights activism to copyright law; immigration rights to gender studies; economics to Medieval art of banqueting; Jewish histories of the Holocaust to Spanish films, and so forth as well as books requiring multi-indexes that may include Biblical passages and ancient sources. In short–this dedicated indexer loves her job!
