Are you a technical writer who has to create indexes for the books you
write? Do you want to create an index that reflects the quality you've
put into the rest of the book but you just don't know where to begin?
The Carolina Chapter of the STC has a workshop for you: Indexing
Computer Manuals, by Richard (Dick) Evans, President of Infodex Indexing

Services, Inc.

The workshop is one day of lecture and exercises and addresses the
following questions.

- What is an index?
- What are the building blocks of an index?
- What does an index look like?
- How do I select material for the index?
- How do edit the finished product?
- How do I ensure the index meets my readers' needs?

Dick has over thirty years experience in the computer industry. He has
been, at various times, a computer operator, programmer, systems
analyst, technical writer, and human factors engineer. In that last
role he became interested in indexing while conducting usability tests
on indexes for telecommunications manuals, though he contends that his
interest goes back much farther, to his earliest computer experiences
when he struggled to find critical information buried in volumes of
computer manuals.

He retired from corporate life in 1992 and started Infodex Indexing
Services, Inc. Now he specializes in indexing computer books for both
corporate clients and publishing house. He is a senior member of the
Society for Technical Communication (STC), on the board of directors
of the Carolina chapter, and manager of the chapter's Education and
Training Committee. He is also on the board of directors of the
American Society of Indexers (ASI) as well as president of the Carolina
chapter of ASI.
