ASI Webinar: Using Tablets for Marking Up with Joan Shapiro

ASI Webinar: Using Tablets for Marking Up

with Joan Shapiro

Wednesday, February 23, 2022

10 am Pacific; 11 am Mountain; 12 pm Central; 1 pm Eastern

Joan will demonstrate her method for using a tablet to mark up PDFs for back-of-the-book indexing. She will demonstrate using an Apple iPad and Windows PC, but will also provide information about using alternate types of hardware. If you mark up pages of the books you index, this is a great technique to save on printing costs and to make your indexing practice more portable for traveling.

Participants will:

  • Learn indexing mark-up technique using tablets
  • Discover how to make indexing portable to enable traveling
  • Understand when marking up on a tablet makes sense

Joan Shapiro has been indexing for more than 20 years, working with a wide range of subject matter for trade and scholarly books. Joan holds a bachelor degree in mass communication and a master of library science. She is a former ASI board member and former New England-ASI chapter president.

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.
