Welcome to Indexing

  1. 1. Welcome to Indexing SERVICE 10 MINUTES AT A TIME!
  2. 2. General Rules Pray for an open heart and good eyesight. Type what you see. Don’t add information you “know is true,” even if it is! ◦ Example: The place is listed as Fredericksburg, Virginia, there is a space for the county. You know Fredericksburg , VA, is in Spotsylvania County. Unless the county is listed on the page you are indexing, don’t add it. READ THE PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS! Don’t stress, don’t worry, relax and have fun.
  3. 3. Good Things to Know Two people index each file. A computer checks for differences. An Arbitrator looks at both entries and decides which is correct. You can see how you’re doing.
  4. 4. You Can Check and See How You’re Doing But Remember, it’s NOT a competition, and this ISN’T a grade. It’s a chance to see where you are making mistakes. It’s a chance to improve.
  5. 5. You Can Check and See How You’re Doing Look at the Arbitration Results tab. Click Review Batches.
  6. 6. You Can Check and See How You’re Doing Click on a batch.
  7. 7. You Can Check and See How You’re Doing It shows you differences and what the arbitrator decided. I typed 1025, it was really 1925!
  8. 8. Arbitrators Are the Best! They catch mistakes. They have the final decisions. You can relax!
