ASI Webinar: The Way Forward—Current and Future Issues for Publishing and Indexing
with Diana Witt
Wednesday, March 31, 2021
10 am Pacific; 11 am Mountain; 12 pm Central; 1 pm Eastern
As you launch into your 2021 planning, what do the current trends in electronic and print publishing mean for the indexing industry? What new markets can you tap into? For example, is the growth of self-publishing an emerging indexing market? What about the growing market of audio books and podcasts? With non-fiction book sales now outpacing fiction and poetry, are more indexable books flowing into the publishing pipeline? Has the impact of Covid-19 on publishing run its course, or will it affect publishing, and therefore indexing, into the foreseeable future? Diana takes a look ahead and helps you chart your course.
This webinar will cover:
- What the current trends are in electronic and print publishing
- Whether the growth of self-publishing indicates an emerging indexing market
- Why the growth of audio books and podcasts is of interest for indexers
- When non-fiction book sales began to outpace fiction and poetry
- Where indexing's position is in the book production workflow
- How Covid-19 has impacted publishing

Best Practices for Optimal Viewing
We wanted to share a few best practices to improve your viewing experience of this webinar presentation. Please be aware that the setup of your computer and software impacts the quality of your connection.
Streaming services may adjust the quality of your video stream from standard definition (such as 240p or 360p) to high definition (720p or 1080p) based on the speed of your Internet connection (bandwidth). For this reason, you may notice that the quality of your video changes as you watch videos.
For an optimum experience, we recommend that you turn off other computer applications. Ask others at your location to avoid excessive use of the internet such as video streaming. Use a wired connection, rather than wireless, if possible. Also ensure that your browser is updated. It is good practice to reboot your computer before joining the live event.
While most webinars go off without a hitch, if you happen to experience connection issues, remember that you can view the replay on the ASI website later on the same day of the live session.
