Online workshop - Periodical/Database Indexing

I would like to announce an online workshop which might be of interest to archivists: Periodical/Database Indexing which will be given through the Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science this fall. This workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to the standards and best practices of indexing all types of periodicals, including magazines, journals, newsletters, and newspapers. The principles and practices of periodical indexing can also be applied to indexing historical documents, collections of documents on a website, and internal documents for a large company. More information is available at $275 (Simmons GSLIS Alumni Price $220) April 1 - May 12, 2013 - PDPs: 25 Instructor is Linda Dunn, a freelance periodical/database indexer of more than thirty years experience. I have presented several workshops on periodical indexing and creating controlled vocabularies, including previous online workshops on periodical/database indexing for Simmons College GSLICE.
