Training in Indexing: Info Session

Have you ever thought about supplementing your editing, proofreading or library/ information management skills with indexing, or just want to hone your indexing skills? If so, then this one-hour Melbourne Indexers seminar is for you.

The University of California, Berkeley Extension offers a six-month, part-time, online indexing course. The course provides a through grounding in predominantly back-of-book indexing. The course, although American, includes Australian and Canadian content, where it differs from US indexing practice. The course has the highest success rate for completion of any indexing course in the world, and the highest success rate of graduates finding real work. 

The course uses continuous enrolment so you can enrol at any time. Further details at the course website.

Max McMaster, one of the course instructors, will provide more information about the course, and two recent course graduates – Alisa Dodge and Sharon Lapkin – will outline their views and experiences of the course. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
