To be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1620 Prince Street, Old Town, Alexandria Virginia on January 19, 2019
Enid L. Zafran, one of our long-time members and a well-known indexer, will give a full-day workshop on the topic of Indexing Names. No matter what field of indexing you specialize in, no matter how long you have been an indexer, names always present a challenge.
Enid will consider names indexing from three aspects:
- the strategies to make them into index entries,
- determining when a name is “indexable,”
- the correct formatting and sorting of names of various types.
There will be hands-on exercises during the day (no laptop or software required).
This workshop was given for the first time in Chicago in October 2018, and participants commented: “Enid covered so many different naming principles that challenged us and illuminated our knowledge. Everyone who attended was enthralled with the presentation from this veteran indexer.”
Registration is open until 1/11/19. Please visit our chapter meetings page for registration form and mailing details.
