Addressing a need for indexed, searchable materials relating to interpreting and deaf studies, The National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology has recently developed an index to close that gap.
"It's been difficult for those of us who have tried to do research on interpreting, or learn about updates in the Deaf Studies or interpreting fields, up until now," said Jonathan Millis, electronic resources librarian at NTID.
The index can be found at www.ntid.rit.edu/terpref/index.htm.
While the index does not provide full text, it does provide abstracts and introductory paragraphs from many interpreting newsletters, proceedings and periodicals. The reader may search by author, title, subject, or words that appear in these fields.
This index is a work in progress, said Millis, and will continue to build.
The first and largest technological college in the world for students who are deaf and hard of hearing, NTID one of eight colleges of Rochester Institute of Technology, offers educational programs and access and support services to 1,100 students from around the world who study, live and socialize with 14,000 hearing students on the RIT campus.
