Taming the Metatopic
with Kay Schlembach
This webinar was recorded November 19, 2014
Do you struggle with mastering the metatopic of a book? Are you comfortable working with the metatopic? What IS the metatopic, and why is it increasingly important?
By taming the metatopic, both main and local, a stable index structure can be developed. Kay will present examples, discuss various approaches, and suggest solutions to this challenge. If time permits, finding the metatopic in biographies will also be discussed.
This webinar will help you improve your indexing skills through an exploration of the menace and management of the metatopic. We will focus on three areas: characteristics, definition and purpose of the metatopic; increasing importance of the metatopic; exploration and examples of successful metatopic management.
From this webinar, you will:
- Understand the purpose of the metatopic
- Determine the metatopic with greater success
- Learn to easily create better metatopic structure within your index
