Workshop: Indexing for Multiple Outputs

9:00 am - 5:00 pm - Workshop

The all-day workshop will focus on how to index content that will be published in more than one type of format, such as to print, online help, mobile, and eBooks.

Although you’re applying the same indexing concepts, you must accommodate your entries to work in every type of output. How do you do this? Cheryl will guide you through the process with best practices she has developed during more than two decades of indexing technical documentation in a variety of formats.

Meeting: The Future of Indexing

5:30 pm - 7:00 pm - Networking/Refreshments

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm - Presentation /Virtual Presentation

During the evening session, Cheryl will talk about how indexing has changed during the past five years and what indexes will look like in the future. She will also talk about the skills technical indexers need to adapt to this rapidly changing world. It’s a scary time, but it’s also exciting to think about the new opportunities on the horizon.
