ASI Online Learning: Getting Started in Indexing with Madge Walls
What attendees are saying:
” . . . even after being an indexer for decades, I learned a lot from your talk, especially good tips for recordkeeping. Looking forward to Part II!”
“Really down-to-earth, practical, and helpful. I’ve established some of my own routines, but your ideas will definitely reshape some.”
Making the Most of Your Website
Q. How can I find the webinars I purchased so I can watch the replays?
A. Simply go to the page where the webinar is posted. Be sure you are logged onto the website. You’ll see the replay box right at the top.
You can find webinar pages in a few ways. On the left side of the website www.ASIndexing.org a box titled Categories displays a bulleted list that includes Webinars. Click for a list of ASI webinar presentations.
Alternatively, use the menu on the left. From the Webinars button, you’ll see a fly-out menu with the option “List of Webinars.” If you prefer to search in an indexer-logical way, you might use one of the other menu options such as Index to Webinars/Online Learning, which lists ASI webinars by presenter and by title.
