The Library’s Publishing department has an ongoing requirement for freelance editorial services. Typically editorial work is commissioned on a title-by-title basis, with single tasks contracted separately to specialist copy-editors, proof-readers etc. Due to a particularly busy programme for autumn 2016, the British Library now wishes to consolidate some of this work and is seeking to appoint a temporary editor for a short period of part-time in-house work to support delivery of key autumn titles.
