cm magazine logo

CM: Cana­dian Review of Mate­ri­als is look­ing for a web man­ager to assist with the cre­ation of jour­nal issues released between Sep­tem­ber and June.

CM is an open access non-profit elec­tronic jour­nal of Cana­dian children’s and young adult lit­er­a­ture owned and oper­ated by the Man­i­toba Library Asso­ci­a­tion (MLA).  CM is freely avail­able on the Web at http:// www.umanitoba.ca/cm and is housed on a com­mu­nity server at the Uni­ver­sity of Man­i­toba.  CM is pub­lished by a team of ded­i­cated vol­un­teers 41 times annu­ally with some 850 book reviews. There are cur­rently five web man­agers and a sixth is needed.

The new web man­ager would be respon­si­ble for tak­ing Word files and cre­at­ing html text and plac­ing into exist­ing tem­plates for table of con­tents and review con­tent for approx­i­mately 20–25 book reviews per issue. You would under­take the devel­op­ment of eight issues annu­ally tak­ing approx­i­mately 2–3 hours per issue. As a web man­ager for CM, you become a mem­ber of CM’s Board of Dlrec­tors which reports to the MLA. Sev­eral of our long stand­ing web man­agers act as our IT and journal-creation spe­cial­ists so there is pro­fes­sional assis­tance to guide you with your work.  Your first issue would be early Octo­ber 2016.

If you are inter­ested in tak­ing on this vol­un­teer activ­ity for Canada’s only national review­ing jour­nal of children’s and young adult lit­er­a­ture, please send your resume to Dr. John Tooth, Man­ag­ing Edi­tor, CM, at j.tooth@videotron.ca.
