How to Think Like An Indexer [On-line Event]

  • Dec 9, 2013 · 9:00 AM

Indexing is a profession: Learn from the experts! This session had a lot of votes, so we found Lucie Haskins, professional indexer, and found a time when she can come talk!

Here’s what she’s going to talk about:

In the age of rapid fire information exchange, the artful skill of categorizing and organizing content has never been more critical. For Technical Communicators, the complexities are astounding when you consider accessibility from multiple perspectives and then compounded when you factor multi channel delivery. In this TC Dojo we will show you how you can begin to think like an indexer when designing your strategy. How to categorize and organize hierarchies of information and, most importantly, how to craft your indexing from objectivity. This Dojo session will introduce you to the skills that will enable you to create succinct indexes consistently for all of your publications.

Audience: All Levels

Cost: Free

    Great content. Just framing the talk as "how to think like..." promised real value, and Lucie Haskins delivered ("in spades"). Lucie painted a broad and accessible picture of the challenge and opportunity of great indexing, with passion and real-world mastery. Very informative, as well as validating, and inspiring, for me. Made me want to put a whole new focus on indexing as a key practice to include when designing collaboration architectures.
