GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF CLASS
The PROOFREADER reads publication proofs word for word, checking for errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation and typeface, marking copy with appropriate proofreader marks to indicate errors. Work is normally performed on hard copy (printed paper) but may be performed at a computer terminal. Duties are usually performed in a normal work setting.
This is a single classification and not currently part of a series of classes.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS
Employees in this class have in-person contact with printers about two to three times a week to pick up galley proofs or deliver corrected proofs for final printing. Employees may exchange information with editors about proof or printing problems relevant to a specific publication.
Employees in this class receive general supervision from a supervisor in a printing, publishing, or general office environment. Work is reviewed for accuracy upon completion by the supervisor. There may be occasional direct feedback from an editor responsible for a specific publication. Employees in this class are guided by the Chicago Manual of Style, the General Printing Office Style Manual and dictionaries and typeface catalogs to assure correct spelling, punctuation, grammar, style, and typeface.
