From The Association of Book Publishers of BC (ABPBC):
"Call for Teacher-Librarian Evaluators
BC Books for BC Schools and Canadian Aboriginal Books for Schools
The Association of Book Publishers of BC (ABPBC) is calling for experienced reviewers to join the evaluation for our catalogues.
Evaluators will select resources from submissions from publishers that have a match to the BC curriculum for the BC Books catalogue. The Aboriginal catalogue will be distributed across the country so knowledge of curricula in other jurisdictions will be helpful for evaluators. For both projects, evaluators will also write the annotations and identify curricula match and grade levels.
Evaluators must be available over the summer to undertake this work. Books will be mailed to evaluators in early July. Annotations of selected books are submitted via email and must be completed by August 15, 2011. Evaluators will work under contract from their homes and must declare their self-employed income to Revenue Canada. Evaluators will be paid $25 an hour.
If you are interested in joining either of the above evaluation teams or both, please send a résumé and sample review of a book of your choice by mail, fax or email to:
Association of Book Publishers of BC
600-402 West Pender Street
Fax: (604) 684-5788
Please indicate the kinds of books that you are most interested in reviewing. Reviewers must, however, be prepared to evaluate a wide range of titles. The ABPBC is particularly interested in hearing from teacher-librarians with an interest in First Nations material K-12, secondary level evaluators and those who can review French material.
Evaluators who have previously worked with the ABPBC need only send an expression of interest, however, they will not be guaranteed a position. In order to ensure the quality of this program, the ABPBC encourages fresh voices on our team. Only selected annotators will be contacted.
DEADLINE: June 12, 2010"
