Hurwitz Indexing was founded in 2007 by Shoshana Hurwitz to provide publishers and individuals with fast, accurate indexing and editorial services.

Indexing Skills
My prior career in librarianship and experience with many varied computer programs have provided a strong ability to organize information for successful retrieval. This led naturally to indexing. My lifelong passion for books and learning also provides a strong background in many genres.

Publishing Skills
Through my journalism degree, library work, and positions at a weekly newspaper and a quarterly magazine, I have gained skills in copyediting, proofreading, transcription, and Internet research. I have an excellent eye for detail and am a perfectionist when it comes to working with written material. In addition, in my free time, I have volunteered my services for newsletters of nonprofit organizations, written CD and book reviews for the Association of Jewish Libraries as well as a column about indexing for the website of the freelance organization Elephant, and have been published in The Indexer, an international quarterly indexing journal. My indexing work has improved these skills as well as my organizational and writing skills.
