- Must know Wiki formatting or be willing to learn. A wiki account will be created for you and you will be expected to supply an email address.
To get credit for the Editing merit and be considered as an active editor, you will need to make edits to at least 20 pages in three months.
- Must be knowledgeable of the English language or be willing to advance their knowledge, since it is a big part of the editing process.
- Must know how to follow a Manual of Style, since it is a big part of the editing process.
The Editors were an official staff position in the Department of Research in the past. However, it was decided that to give editors more freedom to do their own edits, the position will cease to be official, and editors will make edits whenever time allows.
After the Library's ageing and evolving, the need for more structured editing became obvious, and the position was once again introduced as an official staff position in the Department of Research and Records.
