A Primer on Findability

Cheryl Landes, Owner, Tabby Cat Communications, originally presented 6 May 2015

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? In this webinar, Cheryl Landes will talk 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.
