English abstract

The paper describes some essays in order to know the consistency of indexation of different kinds of documents (article, graphics, picture). Indexer were trained during 30 hours in indexation methods. It worked with 3 groups of 3 indexers. In conclusion, the consistency levels are lower in cases of graphics and pictures than in articles. In addition, results of those new indexers are similar than obtained in the scientific literature about this topic.

Spanish abstract

Se describe una serie de ensayos para conocer los índices de consistencia en la indización de diferentes tipos de documentos (artículo de revista, gráfico y fotografía). Para ello se ha trabajado con alumnos a los que se ha dado treinta horas de formación en indización. A falta de trabajar con una muestra mayor, se concluye que los índices de consistencia van disminuyendo progresivamente según se trate de un artículo, de un gráfico o de una fotografía, y que los índices de consistencia logrados por los indizadores noveles no están muy por debajo de los recogidos en la literatura para este tipo de ensayos.
