American Society of Indexers, Arizona Chapter, Presents Indexing Online
A Workshop With Seth A. Maislin
As publishing technologies and information sciences advance, the need for
indexers is not only expanding, but it is also getting wider attention.
At the American Society of Indexers March workshop, Seth Maislin will
discuss how classical indexing theory applies (or doesn't apply) to
electronic media, covering such topics as search engines, hyperlinks
as page numbers, index layout in HTML, embedded indexing, and online
help. He will discuss the changing business aspects of indexing and give
his predictions about the future of online indexing.
Seth Maislin is an in-house indexer for O'Reilly & Associates, a Boston
publisher of computer-related books. He is also the sole proprietor of
Focus Publishing Services.
An experienced speaker, Seth has presented workshops at the
Massachusetts ASI chapter conferences and to private industry
documentation teams and authors on indexing theory and technique.
Seth is co-webmaster for the ASI. His personal web site is http://www.oreilly.com/people/staff/seth.
