Not that I’m more interested in food than in the presentations for the ASI conference in Portland ME, but that’s important, too. I found this article in Bon Apetit on where to eat in Portland ME and thought I’d share it. I do intend to eat some lobster and oysters while I’m there! Links included in the article; however, Scales Restaurant is mentioned no link is given. Thanks to Google, you can check that one out here
From Joanne Sprott on the Potomac Indexing Blog here a great article on “Name Dropping in the Index” that I found helpful in dealing with names in some indexes–particularly in academic publications where “vanity” inclusion is an issue–where the number of times an author is cited is important.
Good information for authors and for indexers.
I just got my email update from the Potomac Indexing Blog and thought I’d share the link. As usual some good suggestions for the Indexing Toolkit by Meghan Brawley.
Now to work!
Since we all probably do have websites, I’m sure this will be huge benefit for a very modest financial investment.
