New England chapter (NEASI) Summer 2020 Virtual Meeting
Friday, June 26th
noon to 1:30 pm (EST)
FREE for New England chapter members
$5 ASI members
$10 non-ASI members
noon: Indexing Exercise and Review:
If you couldn’t attend the 2019 NEASI winter meeting, here’s another chance to do this exercise with other New England Indexers!
Peer reviews are a helpful way to see the work of other indexers and discuss the challenges of indexing. This indexing exercise goes beyond the typical peer-review process by having all attendees prepare a short index prior to the meeting: two chapters from the book The Invention of the Sewing Machine by Grace Rogers Cooper. At the meeting, we will discuss the similarities and differences among our indexes. Upon registration, a pdf of the entire book will be sent to the participant so register early! You will not be required to share your index with other chapter members but to fully participate in the discussion you should have completed the index ahead of time.
1 pm: “Coffee Break” and networking
1:30: NEASI Business Meeting (New England chapter members only)
Zoom links for this virtual meeting will be sent to registered participants the day before the meeting.
