SUBJECT: Early Bks/Etext Job (Michigan)

The University of Michigan Library's electronic-text group is looking
for an editor/proofreader to work on the large etext projects that it is
responsible for under the aegis of the 'Text Creation Partnership,'
namely the full-text components of Early English Books Online, Evans
Early Amerian Imprints, and (prospectively) Eighteenth-Century
Collections Online. EEBO produces structurally tagged electronic
transcriptions of pre-1700 English books; Evans (just beginning) of
pre-1800 American books; and ECCO (still in our future) of 18th-century
English books. EEBO alone, approaching 7000 texts completed so far on
the way to 25,000, is probably the largest text corpus of its kind ever
attempted; the three projects taken together are something quite
unprecedented.

The new editor will join six others similarly employed--three at
Michigan, three at Oxford. The job is a modestly-waged library staff
position, not a faculty position, but it does offer a chance to read
extensively in early books, to use and expand subject knowledge and
technical skills, and a congenial work environment.

The official posting and job description can be found at:
http://websvcs.itcs.umich.edu/jobnet/job_posting.php?postingnumber=037707

The official salary range (class 07) is $27,600 to $65,100, but candor
compels me to say that the actual salary is likely, as usual, to fall
towards the lower end of that range. The job is posted as a term
appointment (through July of 06), with the possibility of extension
dependent chiefly on the availability of funding.

For further information about the TCP projects, see
http://www.lib.umich.edu/eebo/ and http://www.lib.umich.edu/evans/
