indexHAUS assumes indexing operations from iNTELLiNDEX and new bud press, inc., Mauri Baggiano, founder says.

indexHAUS is an indexing services business that will soon open its doors to publishers in the USA and Great Britain. The indexing operation is based in Ellicottville, NY, founded and owned by Mauri Baggiano, a publishing industry professional since 1980.

In the 1980s, Mr. Baggiano served as an author and content editor, and later an indexer, for The Lawyers' Cooperative Publishing Company (now part of Thompson/West Publishing). In the 1990s, Mr. Baggiano served in the LexisNexis organization in Charlottesville, VA, as the lead for indexing development in print publications, acting as the Indexing Manager of State Code operations, and later, Indexing Manager of Professional Publications. In the late 1990s, he created for Lexis their first independent-contractor based, desktop publishing, indexing operation.

In the year 2000, Mr. Baggiano left LexisNexis and started iNTELLiNDEX in Charlottesville, VA, a successful indexing business serving legal, medical, and college text book publishers in the USA and overseas for over 12 years. In 2004 he formed, along with a Lexis colleague, new bud press, inc., which offered to publishers, indexing services in addition to editorial services.

What makes indexHAUS different from these other ventures is a commitment to readers over publishers. The owner's vast experience in indexing and working for and with the publishing industry has given him the opportunity to re-tool and re-think indexing operations, from the bottom up and the top-down.

The focus of indexHAUS will be where it should be the founder proclaims – with readers. The entire publishing industry wouldn't exist without them. The indexing staff at indexHAUS will be dedicated to helping readers when they need it most – when they need to find something of importance to them in the books they've purchased. Unlike search engines, indexHAUS's indexes will create contextually on-point, intelligent filters to the contents of publications.
