In this webinar, participants will learn how to put Standard D12 of the Professional Editorial Standards (“Ensure all tables, visual elements, and multimedia are consistent with surrounding text and are consistently presented”) into practice.
This webinar introduces how to critically examine maps as an editor, develop and edit requirements for maps in text publications, and review the results.

In “Book Formatting Using Word Styles” you’ll learn how to create a fully customizable print book layout using Microsoft Word.

There is no such thing as a neutral photo. Every photo you'll ever see has been processed: colour adjustment, light balance, cropping, and sometimes finer manipulations to fix flaws or trick viewers. To be in control of how photos look, you have to know how to use the processing software (e.g., Photoshop, Lightroom).

If you are most familiar with print material but are being asked to create or edit web content, this workshop will help you bridge the gap. Web content is a conversation. All print materials need to be re-created to fit the web style, site purpose and design. The audiences, the media and the criteria are different. Plain language online content guidelines target the needs of web readers and users to ensure understanding, accessibility and usability. Ensuring you understand your audience and they understand your information goes a long way to succeeding online.
