THE EYES HAVE IT: THE INDEXER PERSPECTIVE—PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE
APRIL 28–29, 2023. Presented by the American Society of Indexers
Indexers view books with a unique perspective. They look for concepts and ideas that readers seek and determine the best ways to help them find what they’re looking for. This year’s ASI conference considers the indexer perspective—past, present, and future. By taking a look back, indexers can discover how their work has been informed. Real-world insights help indexers enhance the skills they use on a daily basis. A glimpse ahead foretells how indexers will fit into the future landscape of publishing.
You’ll see two highly engaging keynote speakers: Jennifer Parrucci, senior taxonomist, gives an insider look at metadata at the New York Times and how news content is organized; Olga Brudastova, President of Local 2110, reveals what we can learn from the recent HarperCollins strike.
Attendees may choose from four bonus sessions on indexing software that give users an over-the-shoulder peek at the tips and tricks experts use.
