Assigned Indexing
#LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES
https://librarianshipstudies.blogspot.com/2017/02/assigned-indexing.html

A new article in the Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog provides an exhaustive description of Assigned Indexing.

Assigned Indexing
If the terms are selected from the title or the text of a document and used without any alteration as index terms, then this is referred to as natural language indexing or derived indexing. If however, the selected terms are translated or encoded into authorized terms by the help of a prescribed list, then the indexing language becomes controlled or artificial.
