Microindexer 1983 to 1992

Notes on emerging technology 1983 to 1992

In 1983 both The Indexer and SI's newsletter seemed in danger of being overwhelmed by technical material and discussion among computer users, and a Technology Working Party was formed. It produced the MicroIndexer, intended to be a technical supplement to The Indexer, hiving off such material from the journal.

Its first issue was in January 1983, a single A4 sheet, beginning:

"This is the first in a series of occasional newsletters which will be devoted to the use of microcomputers by indexers".

MicroIndexer ran eventually to fifteen issues, finishing in 1992, totalling 152 pages.

All 15 issues and an index can be downloaded from the links below.

Please note:

Some of the files are fairly large.

A few of of the originals from which they were scanned have become faded.
