The webinar will focus on the white paper titled Best Practices: Indexing Names & Parties, which was adopted by the PRIA board on Feb. 17, 2015. One of the purposes of the white paper was "to suggest how recording offices can reconsider their indexing policies and practices in ways that are more scientific and less arbitrary and artful, utilizing computer technology and programming techniques available today."

During this webinar, topics of discussion will be:

  • What’s in a name?
  • Looking for a name in all the wrong places
  • Indexing made easier
  • To key, or not to key ...

Cost is free to PRIA members and $25 for non-members.  Non-members can apply their $25 registration fee towards 2015-16 PRIA membership dues.
