Online Meetings Guidance

In the current Covid-19 situation, with no ‘live’ conferences or local group meetings taking place for the foreseeable future, SI members are increasingly turning to Zoom to stay in contact. While many local groups are already holding Zoom meetings, EB is now encouraging SI members to gather people by subject area or by special indexing skill. You do not need to be an expert on either the subject area or on using Zoom; you just have to be willing to gather people together and to be welcoming and encouraging. Guidance on setting up and hosting such a meeting, and on the technicalities of Zoom, is available in the documents below.
