Melanie Gee Indexing Services
I live in Sheffield, on the edge of the Peak District. I love being in green spaces, so when I’m not indexing in my garden office or pondering the depths of my garden pond, you’ll find me out and about in the river valleys and moorland.
Qualifications and work experience
I have a BA (hons) in Physics (Oxford University), an MSc in Information Management (University of Sheffield), a Certificate in Environmental Conservation (University of Sheffield), and a piano diploma (London College of Music). I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Before indexing, my professional roles included several years as a patent examiner, and as an academic researcher undertaking and publishing literature reviews and qualitative research on health and wellbeing. I also taught and supervised doctoral students. In addition, I have worked and volunteered with a local wildlife trust and in ecological records centres.
I was the joint winner of the Society of Indexers (SI) Betty Moys Award for the most promising newly accredited indexer when I qualified in 2013. I am now a Fellow of the SI and a training course tutor, so naturally I need to maintain a high degree of rigour in my own indexes. Beyond that, I also organise professional development activities for indexing colleagues, and am the SI's CPD Director. I have presented in virtual conferences run by the SI and the American Society for Indexing, and written articles for the SI’s own publication Sidelights and for The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing. All this ensures that my indexing practice is constantly developing as I reflect on my own practice, debate with colleagues, and learn from and contribute to research.
The author was delighted with the index. He said he'd never seen such a detailed one!
