SLA Click U Live Seminar: Creating Indexes on Web Sites and Intranets

This Click U seminar was originally held live on March 5th. It filled up so quickly resulting in a long wait-list, so the DC Chapter is offering a replay next Thursday, July 17th. (Feel free to share this seminar announcement with others who may be interested - SLA members/non-members.)

Presented by

Heather Hedden, Information taxonomist, Viziant Corporation; freelance book and Web site indexer, Hedden Information Management

This seminar is designed for those with any responsibility for designing or editing content of Web sites (especially library Web sites) or intranets. The seminar is suitable for learners both with and without experience in writing back-of-the-book style indexes.

An A-Z site index for a Web site, sub-site, or intranet can be a useful tool. As Web sites grow in size and complexity, users need additional means beyond the navigational menu and a site map to search for the information they want. Index entries are hyperlinked to the desired text within a Web page or to an anchored point within the page. Participants will learn when and where an A-Z index is the best option for site searching, the basics of how to create a hyperlinked index, what software tools are available, and how to design and format an index.
