Here at Potomac Indexing, we just updated our portfolio (check it out here) with the projects we found most interesting over the past year, and it was hard to pare down our choices for a change! 2014 was a much busier year for our business than 2013 was. Different shifts in book publishing had taken some of our indexing work overseas in 2013, but then in 2014 business started coming back as clients realized that indexing required linguistic skill sets that were hard to duplicate in other places.
In addition, we saw an uptick in interesting taxonomy and other types of keywording projects which definitely used our capability for providing multiple associates as experts for these larger-scale projects.
A very satisfying year of great projects and good news for business all around.

Also, let us know how we can help you solve an information access challenge for 2015. We’re ready to go!
