Join us for a special program that honors the winners of the revived STC New England Competition!

And then 

Dig into a compelling issue for all tech writers: How do you make sure that your readers can find the answers they are looking for?

As user documents have moved from print to digital formats, and from static to dynamic content, our thinking about findability has struggled to keep up. The older tools of findability – index, table of contents, logical organization, good typography, and good page design – still have important roles to play. But are there new tools and techniques that can help us do a better job?


On March 19, Cheryl Landes will speak to us about new and revised approaches to navigation, indexing, and searching that will help us help our end users. These techniques apply to a wide variety of document types and platforms and work successfully despite varying interface limitations.


Cheryl Landes is a Fellow of the Society for Technical Communication. She began her career in journalism, discovered a love for technical communication, and became a thought leader in the art of indexing. The author of five books, she has spoken widely at conferences held by STC and the American Society for Indexing. You can get in touch with her here.
